SULA is the story of two women, Sula and Nel, who are childhood friends. Raised together in The Bottom, the hillside black community where failure seems a way of life, both girls are poor but smart and dreaming of better lives. Sula does manage to escape, hopping from city to city all across America for ten years. Ultimately, Sula refers to the inquiry “what establishes excellent as well as wicked?” through the brilliant characterization of Nel Wright as well as deep summary of the life of Sula Peace. I rank this book 5 stars and also would absolutely advise reading this thought-provoking evaluation of any kind of length can possibly justify.

  Two girls who grow up to become women. Two friends who become something worse than enemies.

  Sula shocks the reader out of such complacency. Was I going to close my eyes to this yet again? It is a testament to Morrison's rendering of the relationship between Sula and Nel that their disaffection is the most haunting tragedy in a . Nel admits to herself that she had blamed his death entirely on Sula and set herself up as the “good” half of the relationship. In this regard, Sula is a novel about ambiguity. It questions and examines the terms “good” and “evil,” often demonstrating that the two often resemble one another. Moleskine Book Reviews - Mattviews.
