Great story, controversial characters, heart wrenching and inspiring, and irritating by turns. Most interesting to me was the setting and context for the novel--the women's movement and the political/historical perspective. The story of one woman's journey--against the tide with all the warts and blemishes that go with doing what she did. And of course the famous character that was FLW. True that he doesn't come out a glowing fellow, but certainly an eccentric!
I LOVED this book, but it was nearly impossible in audio. You can't properly convey family trees and relationships as reference in an audio book.
I think that the subject says it all. I suppose that this book may hold epiphany for some, but it was all old news. I do believe though, that people need to leave the closet.
I "listen" alot to audio books and this one is my recent favorite. I loved it. Was tremendous on several different levels! Highly recommend.
