This book is complicated, for one.
And that’s exactly what it is about.
The complicated life of a young girl who turns into a man. (gender-wise) This is not a fantasy/scifi book=)
I have been a fan of the author since reading The Virgin Suicides. And having read this book, I am still a fan.
This book is interesting, and just plain awesome. It is also on Oprah’s book club choice thing (forgive me). I have read all of her book choices and I usually am not a fan of that list (no offense), but this is my favorite from her list by far! Easily.
Exceptional story, very intriguing, great mix of history and fiction, and may I just say, one of the best protagonists I have read about so far. I was hooked as soon as I read the first sentence and really, I could not put book the book down. I know that sentence has been overused way too many times, but I’m telling you, you will know what I mean when you check this book out.
One more extra thing that I was amazed by was the way the author transitioned the events so perfectly, from his (or her) childhood to her (or his) adulthood.
I enjoyed this book very much.
