“The Bluest Eye” is Ms Morrison’s first novel published in 1970, and whereas it is not as polished or perfectly structured as her later novels it is still a gem. It is often said that one should not judge someone until you have walked in his or her shoes, and Ms. Morrison in this novel and in her later novels puts the reader into the shoes of her characters and what one discovers is profound and in many cases a sad and disturbing commentary on our society. I strongly recommend this book. It might not be as polished as the others,413-xT0izBL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_ but it is just as powerful.
