    Pecola Breedlove, a young black girl, prays every day for beauty. Mocked by other children for the dark skin, curly hair, and brown eyes that set her apart, she yearns for the blond hair and blue eyes that she believes will allow her to finally fit in. Yet as her dream grows more fervent, her life slowly starts to disintegrate in the face of adversity and strife.

    Linda says: "Frustrating..."
    "Read Beautifully!"

    If you could sum up The Bluest Eye in three words, what would they be?

    Beautiful, Tragic, Sad


    What does Toni Morrison and Ruby Dee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really enjoyed listening to The Bluest Eye read by Toni Morrison and Ruby Dee. Both narrators read the story beautifully, they made the characters come ALIVE!


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome audio book!
