    (12)

    Set in the rural midlands of England, The Rainbow revolves around three generations of Brangwens, a family deeply involved with the land and noted for their strength and vigour. When Tom Brangwen marries a Polish widow, Lydia Lensky, and adopts her daughter Anna as his own, he is unprepared for the conflict and passion that erupts between them. Their stories continue in Women in Love.

    Geoffrey says: "Death and Rebirth, the Old and New."
    "Horrid and depressing"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If your depressed this book might put you over the edge, very repetitive, no hope; I am very glad I am not part of this family. They live in their own doom. I originally bought another book by this author, but decided not to put myself though the misery of listening to it. I give the performance a 5 star because anyone who can suffer through reading it deserves many stars.


    Did Maureen O'Brien do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    yes, job very well done!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment, when you give a book a powerful title like "the Rainbow" you expect it to have some encouraging messages, not to be dreary and depressing! It should have been called "The Hopeless Family".
