Great story. Best parts when she follows the history of Joe Trace's family and weaves the tale to match that of Violet's with True Belle, Golden Gray, Lestory, Hunter and Wild. It shows Toni is a master at weaving history and generations together even as they struggle to keep from falling apart.

Toni writes in great detail the love that Dorcas and Joe shared, but she skips through the book with every other paragraph. It is a great tradegy when Joe finds his love affair with another man and his wife gets a little crazy at the funeral but, I wouldn't read it again.

    Jazz

    Jazz is a wonderful book. I really enjoyed reading Jazz compared to other novels of Morrison's it seems the most accessible. It is a brilliantly woven story of passion and how crimes of passion are committed. Not only are the characters shown at their best but at their worst honestly portraying these lives that are brought together by fate, love and the city in which they all reside in. In Jazz Toni Morrison weaves a beautiful combination of stories that all carry the idea that everyone needs to be loved. It is an amazing story that weaves together people all trying to defy fate only to realize that they were walking closer towards it. In Jazz the characters find themselves fighting and being drawn to their fate and their lives have some of the same qualities as jazz music. There are trombones and trumpets, clarinets and saxes. Not only does it capture all the instruments and styles of jazz, it glances into many of the cities subcultures and the types of people who dwell in the city.

    Life

    Jazz, by Toni Morrison is a great book. I would reccommend this book to anyone. Morrison's way of entertaining the reader is just outstanding. Jazz, is an upbeat story that will keep the reader on his/her shoes. This book and Beloved, by Toni Morrison is two great written articles. Anyone who is interested in excitement and suspense should read Jazz.
