    "The Bluest Eye is a good fiction that has feminist themes. As an African-American girl dreams to have the blue eyes of a white girl, this story explores the social construct of society as seen through the race and gender inequalities that people face. I enjoyed reading this novel."

    "This book is a must read! It offers insight into a life I never lived. Pecola's hopes and pain come through loud and clear. It is depressing, but an important read if we are ever to understand the adversity those different from us face. I highly recommend it."
