Umm, why is this book rated so highly? Is this an Oprah thing? This book is NOT that good. It's not even very good.

It's extremely poorly written, the writing style is almost juvenile and it's full of repetition and irritating cliches. It follows sev

Zora Neale Hurston
“There are years that ask questions and years that answer.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

C.S. Lewis
“And as He spoke, He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us this the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.”
C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle

Terry Pratchett
“If you want to change a whole people, then you start with the girls. It stands to reason: they learn faster, and they pass on what they learn to their children.”
Terry Pratchett, Snuff
