The Bluest Eye Book Review

The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison

The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison is a historical fiction novel, that switches POV between Pecola Breedlove and Claudia (and her sister, Frieda). However, it’s mainly about Pecola Breedlove. I think it is a beautifully written novel, with poetic language. It’s not your typical story that follows a plot but goes back and forth and takes some getting used to. The character development for The Breedlove’s was especially on point. Although Pecola’s story is not a happy one, heinous in fact, I do recommend reading it. A timeless novel by a gifted author.
