A must-read

The plot sucked me in within a few pages, and I couldn't put it down. Being from New Orleans, I was immediately drawn to the descriptions of the city in the 1920s, which I adored. This book was a random grab from the sale section, and now it's one of my 5 favorite books...

Not bad continued

I suspect that like me you will cringe at the superfluous browbeating and social commentary, but you will also laugh when Razi laughs, and cry in agony when she hurts.

    I really do not know why this book has nothing but rave reviews.

    I really do not know why this book has nothing but rave reviews... it is boring, long winded, and completely rediculous. I initially really liked the idea, but it was not put together well at all. We chose this book because of the rave reviews for our book club and although everyone finished, no one liked it at all (7 people). So morale of the story... don't always believe the reviews. I never cried (well maybe tears of joy when I finished). Skip this book unless you enjoy being tortured by words.
