really liked it
bookshelves: chick-lit, movies, literary, coming-of-age, psychology
Read in November, 1995

College reading assignment. What I remember: thinking it was slow through the first half but by the end really liking the main character. Maybe it was the writing; I remember enjoying her descriptions. This was a book that came alive more in the reviews and discussions than the actual reading so it's hard to say how much I would have liked it if I had pulled it off the shelf in a particularly busy month.

Jeana After I read your comment on Gilead, I was curious how you liked Housekeeping. I liked Housekeeping but had read it with a group of people who all hated it. I guess people either love or hate Robinson's stuff.
