Our book club enjoyed this book and gave it an overall rating of 4/5. The most common theme was the fact that it was thought provoking and sparked discussion.
I found this book to be stereotypical and a ltitle too tragic.
Found myself not being able to put it down
Thoroughly enjoyed the book-thought provoking
Great discussion at the book club meeting
Thoroughly enjoyed the book. The descriptive language used transformed me to Italy every time I opened the book.
I began the book eager to soak up the beautiful work, but ended not quite as impressed.
Our book club enjoyed this book and it made for a wonderful discussion. The book pulls you in at the very beginning causing you to devour the pages and leaves you breathless at the end.
It was slow start but became more interesting. I found it a little unbelieveable, but still enjoyed.
Our book club all agreed we liked the book, but felt some elements were unnecessary; specifically the story line involving Tess. But we recommend it as an enjoyable and dramatic read with a unique twist in an old age question of who you can trust.
I wanted to enjoy this book, but I found it gloomy and pointless. The book is well written and I assume that is why it is critically acclaimed. It leaves you in a place most would never voluntarily go; a place with no hope.
Overall I enjoyed the book, but felt that it was written like a newspaper article and not as enjoyable as it could have been
Heartbreakingly good. My entire book club enjoyed it.
After we all got past the language our book club found this one hard to put down. You will find yourself in the stands cheering him on.
Well written and highly recommended.
I enjoyed it, but I enjoyed Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn more.
I found this book very hard to get involved with and didn't like it all. This really upset me as I thoroughly enjoyed Sarah's Key by this author.
I enjoyed this book and liked the literary references throughout.
I felt this book was beautifully done and was very interesting. I recommend it to tall.
I did not like this book as much as Me Before You.
I enjoyed this book, but I did find it predictable. Took me awhile to want to finish it.
I felt this book overall was disconnected. It was just a bunch of short stories to me that never quite connected on a "novel" level.
My favorite line is “What need was there for words, when we had just shared the sky?” To me that expresses everything the book is---The Sky! The craziness of flying with love intertwined. The book is an exhilarating ride I have no desire to get off of. You feel every twist, turn, dip, and emotion with her.
I feel that I have read this story before and I didn't really experience a fresh look at this topic from the author.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was well written and a very fun read. I highly recommend it to all.
A beautifully written novel that elicits all different type of emotions throughout the wonderful journey.
This book never really connected for me, even though it was well written (reasoning for 3 stars), I just didn\\\'t feel the need to bother with ever turning the page. It might be that supernatural beings/forces has never been my thing. Not sure, I just wasn\\\'t a huge fan.
This book was a page turner and an easy read. I only wished that the book did not end where it did and allowed at least one more day.
This book is beautiful and I was able to get lost in the prose and imagery that Wendell Berry created. What I found most surprising was the author’s ability to write a female perspective so true to form. I was able to relate to several different passages and found myself thinking that the book was true to life. For a piece of Fiction, it read like a diary and to accomplish that is definitely no small task. My favorite line from the book which caused me to pause can be found on page 83: “Most people now are looking for ‘a better place’, which means that a lot of them will end up in a worse one.” This line rang so true for me and I found it especially relevant to today’s societal need for want of what our neighbor has.
I never really got into this book. It seemed pointless and mundane. I didn't find anything intense about the everyday lives of the characters.
Enjoyed the prose and quick read, just a little hard to follow. I would have liked more development with the story.
This was a hauntingly beautiful novel. It was a captivating read that gave an unglamorous view of the resistance in France during WWII.
