Fantastic!

This was the first book by Lee Smith I have read and I loved it! I went to a women's college in Virginia and it reminded me so much of all my friends and made me 'home sick' for those days. Treat yourself to this book- you will not be disappointed.

I just finished this book for a book club.Had to force myself to get through this book. Did not keep my attention. Found myself skimming through many parts of it. No one in my book club liked it. Did not like the characters. They didn't seem to like eachother or themselves. I'm trying to figure out where some readers cried while reading the book. This book lacked flow, character, substance, etc.

    SNORING!!

    The author reads this and I should have stopped the disc as soon as I heard the narrator's very thick southern accent b/c this may have something to do with my not enjoying this book. There are too many characters for this author to handle. Just plain boring, confusing and depressing.

    disappointed

    I was happy to see this book at my local library after having heard about it on Good Morning America. However, it didn't take me long to realize it was a big disappointment. It was vulgar.(Try to read ten pages without an 'F' word.)It was also depressing. Which makes sense, because most of the characters are constantly making bad decisions. I'm glad I didn't buy this book. It would have ended up in the trash.

    Cliche`

    If you are sick to death of 'poor little rich girl' stories, pass this one up. It has been written a hundred times before. The most interesting part of the book was the poetry. If she hasn't already, I hope Ms. Smith writes a book of poetry. That could be worth reading.
