Two girls who grow up to become women...two friends who become something worse than enemies. In this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison tells the story of Nel Wright and Sula Peace, who meet as children in the small town of Medallion, Ohio. Their 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. Download and start listening now!

    " Sula is a good book because it's about a girl named Sula who's always in the wrong place at the wrong time meaning that she always sees death happening around her like when her mother, Hannah, was burning in a fire, she was there watching her. Another thing was when she "accidentally" killed Chicken Little because Sula was playing around with him hand to hand, but then Little's hand slipped and then he went to the river. Suddenly, he drowned and died. Then, she starts to act different between the middle and the end of the book. Nel, Sula's best friend, was married to a waiter from a restaurant named Jude. After that, Nel found out that Sula had an affair with Jude because she thinks that she shouldn't feel lonely. Nel was angry at her because she thought she can trust her own best friend, but it seems like she can't anymore. This proves how Sula is not a good friend because Nel wouldn't hurt Sula the way that Sula hurt her. Therefore, Sula is a good book because it mainly talks about the relationship between two "best friends" and how they interact with each other in the book. "

    " Sula was a very entertaining novel for me to read.This book introduced me to the scary parts pertaining to a friendship; like the risk taken, and who feels as if something was right or wrong. Mainly, Sula is the character that I admire very much because of her bravness, and boldness. The story is setup to make Sula seem like she is the one who does everything wrong, when really her reasoning behind her actions actually serve to a good purpose. Sula's life has been impacted by her friend Nel and mostly her family, people like her grandmother, and mother, and kin. This is rated five starts because this story takes people on an adventure and atually applies real life situtaions that leave them guessing, and eager to ask questions. One can learn that he/she shouldnt understimate their friends or loved one because anything is bound to happen in this place called the world. Sula learns this the hard way and as a result she ended up dying alone;she felt as if everything she did was for a good cause, but everyone around her seems to take her actions in other ways. Honestly speaking, Sula was the good person in this novel, if you dont believe me, you should take on this adventure by reading it yourself. "
