One of Toni Morrison's early novels, "Sula" displays flashes of the brilliance of depth to come in "Song of Solomon" and "Beloved". An uncompromising and perplexing portrait of the realtionship between, Nel and Sula, two black girls/women in early 20th century rural Ohio. Tinged with violence and sorrow, and mysticism, it is of course, beautifully written. ( )

By turns lyrical and stark, rooted and fantastical, delicate and painful; Sula is a haunting novel. This is the story of two young girls, best friends, who grow to be very different women. More than that, though, it's the story of a vibrant community.

Nel and Sula are born and come of age in The Bottom (the black community in the hills above the richer, white town of Medallion). Following their lives we bear witness to the complex tapestry of the town which is held together by the shared pain and triumphs of its inhabitants.

Morrison weaves a vibrant tapestry around The Bottom within which the characters leap from the pages. These are real, whole, compelling characters with profound strengths and deep flaws. They wear their pain and loss with honour while moving on through life as best they can. Like all of us, they are simply human.

Toni Morrison has always taken my breath away and this was no exception. ( )

Sula and Nel are friends who grow up in an impoverished black community in Ohio in the 1920s. After their involvement in a tragic event, which they keep secret, their friendship begins to disintegrate. Nel pursues a traditional life, while Sula follows an alternative path. Sula’s actions are seen as immoral and Nel begins to feel a sense of superiority, which is reinforced by the townspeople. Themes include motherhood, friendship, racism, classism, and shame. Morrison’s writing is beautiful even though the topics and events are often horrific. In the end, there is a ray of hope, as one of the characters arrives at understanding and acceptance. I can appreciate the literary merit of this book, while also have difficulties with some of the more gruesome subject matter. ( )

A story that takes place in the early part of the 20th century, in a segregated black community outside of a small town in Ohio, it's full of Morrison's unique descriptions that allows the reader to see and smell the descriptions in their mind's eye: The loamy Earth, the humid air, the different shades of the resident's skins. Vivid characters populate this tale: Eva, whose husband walked out on her and their three kids. Eva's grandchild Sula is the protagonist. Mental disorders, poverty, and men who create and abandon their children make this story full of a pathos that the reader will feel. ( )

After finishing Song of Solomon, I knew I had to read more Morrison, and thanks to the Book Riot podcast, I decided Sula was what I should read next.

This book was marvelous. I am not going to say anything new about Morrison's writing -- she was a genius and it should be universally acknowledged. I loved this book for centering women and their complicated relationships, especially in a small town. Women trying to make lives, choosing from the narrow options afforded them as Black women in the early 20th century. It resists easy judgements on its characters and their actions even as it sets up Sula and New as opposites in some ways, their lives remain entangled and mirror each other in complicated ways.

A gem of a novel. ( )
