I loved this book. I felt like I knew the characters, even the minor ones. There were a few times when I just wanted to say "get on with it!" but they were few and far between.
I would have given more detail.
I found the additional essays more informative than the main book. The main book just rehashed the same arguments that I've already read and heard. They are not things that the Christians that I deal with take as serious criticism. These arguments are the things that they already have, albeit unsatisfying to me, answers to.
Yes. It was a good story despite the narrator.
His voice just didn't fit the characters. It could very possibly be because he narrated a very depressing series of books and his voice just makes me think about that series.
The story wasn't great, but it was good. I would have probably liked it much better if there had been either a female narrator or if I had read it.
I had a hard time getting into this book. The characters never really grabbed me. Also, the plot was unbelievable.
This was a wonderful book. I wished it would't have ended. It just makes me sad to see that not so much has changed since the 60's.
This was a very well written book but for the most part it wasn't a ghost story. There were a few creepy parts in there but that wasn't the point of the story. But, if you wanted a glimpse into the life of a transgendered person, with a few ghost stories thrown in, this is the book for you.
I really enjoyed this book. The main character got into so many scrapes that I cringed when something was going right with her because I knew that something bad was coming. The end was a little weird, though.
It took a long time to get into this book, but once I did, I was hooked. The characters are very "real" and I couldn't wait to find out what they were going to do next. It was a little hard to realize what "time" you were in, since the book goes back and forth through many time periods.
I was a little nervous about trying this author because I didn't know anything about her. I was very pleasantly surprised. I had also guessed the plot twist, but it was still a wonderful story. I actually "knew" the characters and I was sad when it was over.
This book was wonderful. The story was very well told about an interesting subject. I was taken aback a bit because it wasn't just about Callie. There were large sections devoted to telling about her grandparents and parents in order to get to the present story.
If you don't like a musical background, don't worry, it doesn't last long. If you listen at work or around children, beware that there are a few racy parts and cursing. (I got caught off guard a few times with people in and out of my office)
