It took me forever to finish this book. I agree with a lot of readers who said it gets repetitive towards the end. Everything 3/4 of the way in was already written earlier in the book. But all in all, it's a pretty weighty read: I don't know how people have just read through it like it was a fiction novel. The stories are really good and the lessons of the feminine psyche Estes assigns them are poignant and honest.

sure will mama. it's slow going, almost like reading a text book at times - big words and tons of ideas you actually have to stop reading to think about. :-)

Mimi Marie Not finished yet lol. It's so much information! Some of it is a bit repetitive but not enough to be distracting or annoying. I still really like it so far. There's a lot of truth in it. Maybe I'll actually finish it in the next couple of months...
