Morrison's writing is indisputably brilliant, however this story was just not for me. Almost bizarre at times, perhaps her attempt at magical realism, but the story is not particularly interesting and the book was not a pleasurable read. ( )

Eh. Had to read it for school and it didn't blow my mind or anything. ( )

I think this is my least favorite of Toni Morrison's books (that I've read) because it didn't connect for me very well. ( )

Song of Solomon is about the past, present, and future of an extended family whose ancestors were slaves.

This was not the least accessible of Morrison's books, but it wasn't the most accessible, either. It doesn't jump around a lot like some of her other books, but at the same time, it's not totally linear. I liked it for the most part, but the ending left me dissatisfied, and I'm not entirely sure why. As always, Morrison does make you think. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 140003342X, Paperback)

The third novel from one America's most powerful writers turns 20 years old in 1997, but Song of Solomon long ago ascended to the top shelf in the ranks of great literature. This Everyman's Library hardcover edition of the Nobel Prize-winning Morrison's lyrical, powerful, and erudite novel contains a chronology that situates the book in its historical context, and an introduction from author Reynolds Price.
