it was amazing
bookshelves: own, canlit-challenge-lifetime
Read in October, 1982

I read this when I was about 16, and Christy's "by their garbage shall ye know them" speech was life changing. Love this book. I've read it multiple times, but haven't re-read it in about 15 years. I should again.

message 1: by Luann (new) - added it

Luann I have this whole series and have only read The Jest of God. I should read the whole thing this year.

Miriam Yes, you should! Stone Angel and Diviners are both fine novels. I'm not as fond of the Fire Dwellers.

message 3: by L. (new)

L. Legault I was also shaken and stirred by Christie's 'by their garbage ye shall know them,' and again by the moment when he told Morag that although he now doubted his decision, he had been too *proud* to be anything but a scavenger.
