The Bluest Eye

by Toni Morrison

Open iTunes to Buy


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. A powerful examination of our obsession with beauty and conformity, Toni Morrison's virtuosic first novel asks powerful questions about race, class, and gender with the subtlety and grace that have always characterized her writing. Toni Morrison was awarded the 1993 Nobel Prize for Literature.

Customer Reviews

not the whole book

i downloaded this book to help me read it and as i followed on with it, i found that it skips major portions of the book. i am very unsatisfied


This audio book is missing parts that even the abridged version should include! This recording is tainted, so would not buy this until it has been fixed. Also, please make this book available on the iBook store. I would love to read this on my wonderfully amazing iPad!

Thumbs down

Two stars only for the fact that the audiobook is read by Toni Morrison herself. Although I can't help but wonder why she would give them her stamp of approval to leave out such important parts of her book. Also, iTunes should label this as an abridged version like it does for most other audiobooks.
