I feel her and Toni Morrison share a unique style of writing..like a 'out this world kinda thing'' what do you think?

I know she leaned more on science fiction side; but still, I see similarities between her and Toni Morrison.

I haven't read any of Toni Morrison...I will definitely check her out to my next stop to the bookstore this week...THANKS :)

**matter of fact I'm going to Google her now and check her out on Amazon**

EDIT: Take that back she wrote Beloved...
