Summary:

Ravishingly beautiful and emotionally incendiary, Tar Baby is Toni Morrison's reinvention of the love story. Jadine Childs is a black fashion model with a white patron, a white boyfriend, and a coat made out of ninety perfect sealskins. Son is a black fugitive who embodies everything she loathes and desires. As Morrison follows their affair, which plays out from the Caribbean to Manhattan and the deep South, she charts all the nuances of obligation and betrayal between blacks and whites, masters and servants, and men and women.

    The author makes the story flow very nicely. This is a very well written story, and an incredible book to listen to. I would definitely recommend to all.

  • Janice M.

    I just could not get into this book. It was very slow and boring from the beginning. If I could give it -1 star, I would. Sorry

  • Diane

    I did listen to the whole book, but the story didn't seem to have a point. The ending was very incomplete, not wrapping the story for any of the characters. Morrison is certainly poetic, but the novel was neither interesting or thought provoking.

  • Lisa Parker

    I didn't even listen to this selection, because the 1st CD didn't hold my interest. That never happens. I didn't like that at all.

    I listened to this book, I don't like when I read books or listen to books and the ending is not clear. If you like unfinshed books or stories this is a book for you.

  • Angela Jones

    This story was filled with the difficulties that we all face in new relationships and long term marriages. It demonstrated degrees of love and lust. It is an easy listen.
