Why kill off Baby Suggs? She was one of the most interesting characters in the whole story and, seemingly, the glue that was keeping everything together. I understand the emotional reasons for killing her, but so soon in the story? She was one of the few characters that was keeping me reading. I read that this novel was voted the best of the past 25 years. If so, it better start getting more interesting.
