really liked it
Read in October, 2007

I enjoyed this book but it wasn't quite the page turner I had anticipated. It was very well written and the perspective taken was really interesting.

I have a bad habit of reading the end of a book and then determining if I'm going to see it all the way through. I held off on doing that until I was 3/4 of the way through this one. The ending didn't disappoint, but by the time I gave into my bad habit, I was already into the details of the trial and found myself skimming the later chapters leading up to the final one.

I think that my disappointment over this book comes from my quest for that great book high that I got from reading A Thousand Splendid Suns. I am chasing that high, but have yet to find it. Midwives is a good book though, and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a well written novel.
