5 hours 47 minutes
From the acclaimed Nobel Prize winner: Two girls who grow up to become women. Two friends who become something worse than enemies. This brilliantly imagined novel brings us the story of Nel Wright and Sula Peace, who meet as children in the small town of Medallion, Ohio.

Nel and Sula's devotion is fierce enough to withstand bullies and the burden of a dreadful secret. It endures even after Nel has grown up to be a pillar of the black community and Sula has become a pariah. But their friendship ends in an unforgivable betrayal—or does it end? Terrifying, comic, ribald and tragic, Sula is a work that overflows with life.

I thought it was a good book and I enjoyed Toni Morrison narrating her own work (loved listening to Paradise, for example). However, there are innumerable points throughout the audiobook where the audio just goes to a whisper even at maximum volume which made it very difficult to focus on. Especially since I typically listen as a commuter.

I love her voice reading her own work in the way she wants it read. Wondeful audiobook

A brilliant examination of what happens to a society and the individuals in it when they are cut off from the larger, white society and persecuted by it, including being cut off from resources. But painful to read. Can't say I really enjoyed it, but I'm glad I read the book for its insights. Morrison speaks just above a whisper and sometimes drops her words at the end of a sentence. So, I had to be in a quiet place to listen and turn the volume up high.
