I have returned to this novel several times in my life, this was my third read. Darling Reader, I’m not much of a re-reader, even though I’m trying to change. After a third read, you would think The Bluest Eye was on my list of favorite book, but it is not. I don’t know why because The Bluest Eye hits all of my reading must haves. For a debut novel, Toni Morrison bypasses all hiccups many debut novels seem to have. It doesn’t “read” like a debut to me, and I’m certain there are writers working on their fifth novel trying to achieve what Morrison did in her first.
