I'm not sure if I should rate this book with one star or five. I read it when I was 17, and it prompted me to choose a life path as far away from marriage and children as one could get. Twenty-five years later, I am going to read it again to see how it affects me today. People say, "Watch what your kids watch on TV." Well, French's book is a great example of how books can mess with a child's mind just as profoundly, if not more. That is not a complaint, just a truism.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Len the Librarian on July 11, 2014
I attended Harvard graduate school during the same period that French was a student. She writes about the period with such exemplary emotional clarity and historical accuracy. In the history of feminist writers, she is exceptional. From first page to last, her work remains entirely undogmatic and does not wish to turn the author's autobiographically based story into a political broadside or special-interest tract. It is a work of many virtues, not the least of which is to lay bare a local section of social history in order to allow both the subtle and the crass aspects of gender-based behavior to reveal themselves. French's book is a pioneering piece not only for the moving personal story it seeks to tell but because of the high standard of art it choses to represent. (This review is composed by a man who had only just begun to understand the feminist perspective during the late '60s. I've always wished I had been able to know French while we were together in Cambridge.)

I read this book in the 70's and never forgot it. I have read probably thousands of books since then and this is one of the few I'll never forget
