    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 Garcia Marquez. 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.

    What would have made Song of Solomon better?

    The actual text of the book is great, but I cannot imagine a worse audiobook version.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Song of Solomon?

    I would have kept reasonable order to it, and tried to make it as unabridged as possible.


    Any additional comments?

    It's so disappointing to see such an excellent piece of work have such a terrible edit and recording. It skips around pages at a time and is incredibly hard to follow. Despite Toni Morrison's powerful voice, the edit just doesn't make sense. They even had an automated voice read sections that were missing. Very poorly done. My advice: do not waste your money on it!
