Reading progress update: I've read 76 out of 324 pages.

Beloved - Toni Morrison


I cannot overstate how much I am enjoying reading this book for a second time. The language and imagery is lush and full of so many layers it's almost like poetry. Who else is doing the group read. I want to talk about it.

Favourite lines so far -

"knees wide open as any grave."

"Boys hanging from the most beautiful sycamores in the world. It shamed her - remembering the wonderful soughing trees rather than the boys."

"their two shadows clashed and crossed on the ceiling like black swords."
