Powerful stuff

Really interesting-- I actually didn't listen in class the whole time I was reading it, as I couldn't put it down.

Slow Misery

Entering the world of this novel is depressing enough, and the slow pace and denouement do not justify this entry into darkness.

    The Grass Is Singing

    This is one of the most moving and powerful books I have ever read. I felt their sadness and despair as if they were my own. Pitied their inability yo see and change.

    Relentless masterpiece

    The world of Dick and Mary Turner is one I would not want to visit in person, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate what Lessing has accomplished here. About half way through this relatively short novel, I simply could not stop turning the pages. This is both a masterful study in character (and its dissolution) and a trenchant social commentary. Since reading this book a few weeks ago, I've passed it on to two other readers who've had an almost identical reading experience. This is the sort of novel that would work extremely well in a book discussion group. Much to ponder and debate.
