Years ago I read this story. Thought I would enjoy revisting an ABRIDGED version read by the Author. Ms Morrision's voice is so lovely. The edits on the story are horrible. Suddenly a man's voice interrupts the story and reads a few lines to bridge the cuts in the audio. I cannot even listen to it. Sentences don't even flow. Is there a way to get my money back on this one. Very poor Quality. Do not buy it.

I will typically shy away from unabridged books (audio or otherwise). However, I was figuring this would be a good one to try (T. Morrison narrated) to see if my assumptions were false. I liked having Toni Morrison narrate, but it didn't overcome the uneven abridgement. You certainly can have too little of a good thing.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
I like the book, I would have liked it a lot more if it was unabridged - I didn't realize that it wasn't..
What did you like best about this story?
All the parts that Morrison read
What about Toni Morrison’s performance did you like?
All of the parts that Morrison performs is perfect but there are odd sections completely omitted and dubbed over with a monotonous male voice.. why?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Sadness, anger, happiness.
Any additional comments?
Why is the story not complete? The whole section where Milkman meets Sweet is missing and so are other sections.. in place of those parts was an odd dubbed over male voice that completely ruined the audio for me.. and I'm disappointed. I wouldn't have bothered if I knew parts were going to be omitted.. I don't understand why that was done :(

I absolutely adored the story. Beautifully read as well, but due to the complexity of the names and the way in which the story is told, it can be hard to follow.
I would recommend listening to this, but reading along with it.
Anyone can read it, and I would strongly advise people to read this book, especially with racial issues still being a relevant issue in today's society
