Read in February, 2008

Carol Gilligan is a brilliant woman who has written a better than average debut novel. I found the protagonist to be a fascinating woman and was especially interested in how beautifully Gilligan crafted descriptions of her career, daily life and traumatic history. The love story also was well drawn. I think that the passages about her therapy were overly complex for this novel (perhaps because I have read all Gilligan's scholarly writing my reaction to this was stronger and more critical than people who have not done that reading will experience). I thought the ending was weak although I think I "got" what she was trying to achieve with it.
