BookTini Takes On "Sula"

This book was hard to get into (typical for a Toni Morrison book) but the story is rich and everything has a deeper meaning."

- Capricia A. (SAC)

November's Classic Novel selection by Toni Morrison received a somewhat tepid reception in our recent reader's poll. A mere 48%rated it EXCEPTIONAL or GOOD read, while 24% felt it was just AVERAGE. A combined 28% rated it FAIR or WEAK.

I didn't think I'd like this book because Ms. Morrison doesn't usually tickle my literary fancy, but I really enjoyed this story and it made for a great discussion - Tawanda A. (TWIN)

Overall,

 Sula

received a C grade from the club: most who responded to the poll felt the take on friendship between Sula and Nel and the people of "The Bottom" held a solid storytelling technique, but they were not wowed by the novel. It was a cool story that kept their attention, and they might be open to reading more from Morrison in the future.

No comments about our last signature drink of the season this month, but the ratings spoke for themselves: 70% of those who tried our Bourbon & Maple Cider cocktail either loved or liked it while, 25% thought it was "aight". That's pretty good for an autumn libation. CHEERS!
