    God Help the Child MOBI × God HelpKindle - help book, child book, God Help epub, God Help the Child EpubThis novel is really not goodThe reviews have been studiously polite but have been gesturing to the deficits in the book which are considerable I say this not to discredit Toni Morrison because I love her work But the elements of this novel are explored with so much nuance and terrible beauty elsewhere in her oeuvre cruelty sexual abuse color consciousness and the terrible vulnerability of children The Bluest Eye and the inhuman force of fire t
