really liked it
Read from February 23 to March 21, 2010

I had a hard time distinguishing fact from fiction in this book, something I think speaks volumes about the quality of the writing. The dialogue "sounded" very authentic for the time period and I really enjoyed the "voice" that each character had in my head. More than anything else, this book made me think about how the media portrays people, and how I let that shape my opinions of them. I wonder how Judith Campbell Exner would come across today and how I would feel about her based only on what I saw in the media. No matter what is true or false in The Go Betweens it's fact that Frederick Turner has written a really engaging and interesting story.

Tara Chevrestt I'm anxious for your thoughts on this.. I have been debating if it is for me or not. I normally read historical fiction but the female go between and secret and espionage stuff has got my attention.
