    Format is horrible

    Will not buy with the poor formatting of the nook version. Very distracting... if you are interested definitely look at the sample first. Something is amiss with the line spacing and hard returns are embedded.

    Wow, am I the first?

    I can't believe I'm the first person to write a review for this. It's a classic! Some parts are a little hard to get through, and it's hard to keep some of the characters straight, but keep going! The story of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas's life together is wonderfully written and just an inspiring story.

    I Also Recommend:

    Gertrude Shines

    "The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas" made Gertrude Stein a household name in America in the 1930s, and for good reason. This is Stein at her most accessible and I must highly suggest it for any first-time readers of this literary genius. The book has a light, breezy tone, interesting subject matter (Picasso & various renowned artists pop up throughout), and Stein's trademark intellectual brilliance. The device of using Toklas as an approach to Stein's life is certainly interesting and is responsible for some of the most entertaining passages. And this book is certainly entertaining, thanks to Stein's supreme wit and her clever descriptions of the people she interacts with and situations she finds herself in. I highly recommend this book, especially for those who haven't read Stein before. Her vivacity, wit, intelligence and skill are on display here in an accessible, classic work.

    A WONDERFUL LITTLE BOOK

    I have never read a book that I truly could not put down. I think that phrase is very much over used. But it definitely applies in this case. Stein is a true master.

    Amazing

    It amazes me of how she tries to do things other women don't think of.
