I can't believe this book was recommended as the top books of 2010. It was a painful read. The author "tasted words" Every other sentence read like this: "Thisgreenbeans bookpeaches wascherries a wastecandied yams of timemint."It was beyond distracting and I am stunned that the book was able to be published.

Bitter in the Mouth, the title, has more than one meaning in this very different story of a young woman growing up the in the South. The story turns and twists and captures you in feelings for the characters and their relationships with each other. I loved it!

slow moving, but intriguing read, I have read other books by this author this was not my favorite. Good discussion book

Each sentence of this book was worth considering, reading twice. The reading was slow going because I had to reread various parts to make sure I understand the nuances and references, but the topic and relationships were fascinating. It's not a light read or one for the beach, but it's smartly written and worth picking up.

I really liked this book. It was definitely a bit strange but it kept me interested and wanting more.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story.  The characters were real, relatable and honest.  With the many obstacles that Linda had to over come, her story is of surviving.  Bitter is just one taste our lives experience and I think Linda is just a little bite of sweet and sour.  Then again, aren't we all?

Hard to pick up. I'm only half way through and I just want it to STOP! Where the hell is it going anyway??

Linda Hammerick can taste words....as she narrates her life complete with descriptions of the tastes, her story unfolds. Although she describes how difficult it was at times, I found myself wishing I too had this type of synesthesia.....The characters were beautifully drawn--uncle Harper especially is a delight! I will be reading more of Monique Truong
