"January- It took me about the first 5 chapters to get into the story, but it picked up rapidly from there. I loved this edition as well, the introduction was fascinating, as were the notes in the back."
"February- I enjoyed this very much. I saw the BBC series first, which was very good, and it made me interested in these sisters' very fascinating lives. The last chapter was a litany of death and illness, and got a bit depressing. Overall, great book."
"March-I enjoyed this book immensely. It takes the old folk tale of goblins stealing human brides, and turns it on its head. The author keeps the story moving, and it really is like three books in one. Highly Recommended."
"March-This biography was about a sci-fi writer that I previously knew little about. I found Phillips' treatment of her subject to be objective, and compelling. I am now eager to read more works by Phillips and Tiptree."
"April-This book is considered a modern classic, and I must agree. The author uses a technique that lends a voice to different characters within the protagonists life. In this manner the reader is able to see the "truths" of her life from all angles. Great read."
"May-I had read Butlers' Talent books, and enjoyed them. This is the start of her Patternmaster series, and it is a great book. Her writing can be a little bleak at times, but ultimately this novel ends on a hopeful note."
"May-I liked this book as a reflection of life on a rural farm during the 1930s. I do think that the auther got repetitive with certain of her phrases.Still, a very good read, and the chapters were almost like little essays. I would have liked more information about her life after the farm as well."
