    A Superb Novel

    I first read the 'Price of Salt' 25 years ago at the tender age of 19, the same age as the character Therese in the book. It made such an impact on me. I bought it at the now defunct 'Womanbooks' bookstore on the Upper West Side. Reading the story was like a rite of passage because the book's ending was not your typical period lesbian love story with it's morbid, tragic ending though in some ways it was a sad ending. Mostly it was a more realistic bittersweet finale. It swept me through a range of deeply felt emotions. It is a timeless love story and one that anyone would enjoy! Patricia Highsmith was a storyteller of the highest caliber!

    A Must Read Classic

    This book is well-written...by the end you really have a sense of who the characters were and what motivated them. It is more than a lesbian love story; it's a true novel. This book is read by myself at least once a year...too bad, though, there was never a sequel!

    Eerie

    I read this book after seeing a small bit of the filming for Carol, a movie based on this book. The book was interesting, gave me a different prespective on love. Whike not a scary book by any means,parts of it were just creepy.
