Toni Morrison - Beloved (1987) Audiobook

The story of the inhabitants of a house of Cincinnati, the family of freed and a escaped slave women and the wounds the lives in slavery have left in them and those near to them.

A great book, very well read by the author herself.

Strong character, a strong story and although the audio book is definitively not short, I've never lost grip. I really liked the structure of the story, how memories slowly drift to the surface, to reveal the truth but nevertheless building up to the great mystic interpretation, that is just as possible, as the more historical approach.

I wonder if there is a movie, where memories - safely stored away - break to the viewer and start to puzzle together the greater picture. Great concept.
