Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
In this book, Annie Dillard's unconventionality makes the reader either love her writing or hate it. I would have the say that she did go about her writing style in a rather unique and creative way. It certainly did grab my attention, but I became so frustrated with the book when things would not make sense to me. I admire her for being able to take the risk with the reader, being well-aware that she may not be happy with their extreme reactions. However, I guess this is what writing is all about: creating an impact on the reader. I will never forget her book because it was like nothing I have ever read before, and probably will never read in the future. So if you're interested in being challenged and have the ability to control your patience level, I definitely recommend adding this book to your reading collection.

Makes you scratch your head, in a good way!
Annie Dillard provides the reader with a unique reading experience. Although her writing is unusual and unconventional, the substance of the book is powerful. Dillard explores the world both physically and spiritually. She challenged me to evaluate my life, beliefs, and values. It forced me to think of things I would not have considered if I did not read this novel. Despite the fact that her writing may be confusing at times, I recommend everyone to experience this novel!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
