Description

Milkman Dead was born shortly after a neighborhood eccentric hurled himself off a rooftop in a vain attempt at flight. For the rest of his life, he, too, will be trying to fly. With this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison transfigures the coming-of-age story as audaciously as Saul Bellow or Gabriel García Márquez. As she follows Milkman from his rustbelt city to the place of his family's origins, Morrison introduces an entire cast of strivers and seeresses, liars and assassins, the inhabitants of a fully realized black world.

Critiques

"A rich, full novel.... It lifts us up [and] impresses itself upon us like a love affair." ( New York Times Book Review)
"A rhapsodic work.... Intricate and inventive." ( New Yorker)

Death United Them

I so enjoy the language of Ms Morison which carries you syllable by syllable along with her rich detailed descriptions “swallowed up by the darkness” for example. That have you walking beside her sensing and feeling each encounter with people places and things. Thanks audible for presenting the captivating vocals of the author that played with death from start to finish.

the great Toni Morrison herself

What did you love best about Song of Solomon?

The story and characters are so engaging in Song Of Solomon that it's hard to stop turning the pages, or stop listening along, with this one.

What did you like best about this story?

Hearing the words read by the author, the great Toni Morrison herself, is quite an experience.

Have you listened to any of Toni Morrison’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to many of Toni Morrison's other audiobook recordings, and you can tell that this performance is very recent due to the sound of her voice. I could still listen to it all day long though.

Any additional comments?

The beginning audio started off a bit rough, but this still gets a 5-Star rating, because Toni Morrison is deserving of nothing less.

Beautiful book and Production

Toni Morrison reading one of her most famous works was a delightful treat. I found the book powerful and engrossing, especially the tales of vengeance, regret, and how the desire to know family (good and bad) tie together with this novel spanning decades. Loved it and love her.

Good book, confusing audiobook

While I love the book itself, but audiobook is missing parts and makes it very confusing to listen to!

All time Best American Author

I've loved this book since 1977. It is my favorite of all of Dr Toni Morrison's books, and it gave me chills up and down my spine to hear it read in her own voice. There is no one who can paint tapestries with words except Dr Morrison. This book should be required reading by all American high schools.

Awesome and Captivating!

I absolutely loved this book. it took me a min to get used to the narrator's voices but soon learned that it was perfect for the story told. The story was very interesting and I did not want it to come to an end.

Epic, Empathetic Gospel of Diverse Experiances

The perfect book for a high school literature course. An obvious classic. The Real Deal.

incredible story telling

Toni Morrison has an incredible way of telling layers of stories within one text. She takes the reader from the North, to the roots of the South, then sets them free to fly in the end.

Classic storytelling

I love this book. The longer you listen, the more you’re draw in. One of the few books, I can listen to, and read over and over again.
