I love the fact that Toni Morrison and Ruby Dee read The Bluest Eye. They are wonderful, and, I will admit that I should have known better; it is ABRIDGED. But, I am really frustrated right now because I am reading the book in preparation for the High School Senior English classes I will be teaching this fall. I have tracked the sections of the book missing from the tape, and already, so far, on pages 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 31, 32, 33, 34, there are sentences, and in fact whole pages, missing in this abridged reading. So, if you don't mind missing out on a lot of the book, go for it; but as for me, it is just so frustrating, and I'm not going to be able to use it for my purposes...
just so you know.
