did not like it
bookshelves: didn-t-finish, fiction, southern

I picked this up at the library because the plot sounded intriguing. I read a few chapters, not particulary drawn to the writing and a little bothered by the frequent mentions of God. (I'm a Christian, but a progressive one.)

I decided to read the reviews here and on Amazon and discovered that this book is heavily anti-abortion, not to mention hard hitting on Christianity (and not very well written either). Glad I checked the reviews before reading further. The publishers (which I suspected might have been a Christian publishing house as I was beginning) tried to package the book as literary fiction to trick people into reading it.

Not my cup of tea!!!

Suzanne Oh, no! I bought this book, but I think I will have the same reaction as you. The cover is pretty, however.

Marie Yes, I know--I like anything to do with cicadas--reminds me of the sounds of Japan! Bummer that you actually paid money for it.
