    Not What I Was Hoping For

    I was hoping this novel would take a serious look at religion via the extreme case of a woman who sees visions, but unfortunately the book seems mired in the details of its individual characters to ever stretch beyond them, to ever say something important about religion and what it means to believe or not to believe.

    This book belongs in the Humor section

    All the reviews I have read seem to take this as a serious book. I read it as a comical description of faith and the apparitions that people have turned into ways to make money. How can anybody actually believe that the Virgin Mary comes down from wherever and can cure warts, smoking, and even arthritis. Thousands of "believers" come to boost the economy of a dying community and the pocket books of the "faithful" seers. Come on people. Lighten up and enjoy the book for its humor.

    I don't think so!

    I struggled through this book, hoping against hope that it would gain momentum....but no! The sexual innuendos in themselves were gratuitous and unnecessary. Would I recommend this book to anyone? I DON'T THINK SO!!

    This book was annoying

    I usually read the first few pages before deciding to buy a book. The first few pages of this book are truly well written and kept my interest. By the end of the book, I no longer cared what happened to any of them. Just wanted to finish it. Once I was done, I stared at the book for about five minutes wondering what other things I could have done with my life instead of reading this....like watching my toenails grow or paint dry perhaps.

    Not Worth the Time or Money

    This book is well written but that's the only positive thing I can say. Except for the protagonist, who is a rather bland innocent, none of the characters are very likeable. And I thought I'd scream if I had to read about one more masturbation!

    Never read this book!

    I found this book incredibly boring and pointless. It goes nowhere and has no climax. Don't read it and waste your time and energy on it!

    Couldn't get through it...

    I've made the mistake in the past of reading books that didn't grab me from the start for the sheer sake of finishing them. I decided 'never again'. I got through the first few pages of this book and found it to be crude and disgusting what with Ann's constant... I can't even say it. I promptly shut the book and will be returning it to the library unread. Don't waste your time or money.
