Is it me, or does anyone else find Toni Morrison novels to be a hard read? I have had other people agree with me, to include my 11th grade high school English teacher who suggested that I read Beloved back in 92', I might add. I am curious if anyone else feels the same. Its not that I cannot finish her novels, I just find myself re-reading in order to make sense of some things.

I read the Gift of Fear and There Are no Children Here. Very interesting. What do you call the Gift of Fear? What genre would you say it is?
