    This is only one of my VERY favorite books EVER

    Although (to me) it took a great effort to get through the first two-ish chapters, this book was magic. I absolutely had to put it down several times throughout the read because I had to write down thoughts and phrases that the book inspired. Although my recommendation sounds a bit dreamy and choppy, honestly every person who has taken me up on reading this excellent book has thanked me.

    Passion or furore?

    Jeanette Winterson was dropped on her head when she was born. This book is a result of her disastrous accident at an early age. It's either that or shes terrible at writing fantasy. After reading this appalling, ghastly book of cataclysmically unorthodox misinformed history and unlikely character development, I was astounded to realise she had won numerous awards. By chance it seems she has scathed through the eyes of many critics and grasped her hands around this book. Although I have enjoyed many of her other books, The Passion is one I wish I'd never layed eyes on. A book to most certainly avoid.

    Magic Realism at its best

    This is a wonderful novel that revolves around history as it was and as it might have been. This book made me want to travel to Venice and see if I too, could walk on water.

    A good, solid read

    Ms. Winterson successfully takes the reader through a journey with many different settings.
