    (105)

    Frank Money is an angry, self-loathing veteran of the Korean War who, after traumatic experiences on the front lines, finds himself back in racist America with more than just physical scars. His home may seem alien to him, but he is shocked out of his crippling apathy by the need to rescue his medically abused younger sister and take her back to the small Georgia town they come from and that he's hated all his life. This is a deeply moving novel about an apparently defeated man finding his manhood - and his home.

    Melinda says: "not a novel, but a collection of short stories"
    "hard to hear; one dimensional"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Toni Morrison and/or Toni Morrison?

    No


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Clean ending


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Toni Morrison?

    Someone who didn't drop their voice at the end of a sentance.


    Could you see Home being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes. No idea.


    Any additional comments?

    3rd or 4th Toni Morrison book I've read. I just think she is a one theme writer and has become self consciously 'literate'.
