    Hated it

    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.

    Like a rich chocolate cake.

    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.

    A very different kind of story set in the South.

    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!

    Ok, tried to like it but...

    When you write a story it shouldn't be merely free assotiation.

    A great read!

    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?

    Fascinating!

    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

    Save your money

    I was very disappointed in this book. I read it but would not recommend it. I would not read any other books by this author.

    MAY BE THE BEST BOOK I READ THIS YEAR AND IT IS JAN 1ST

    This book was beautiful, stsrt to finish, with a surprise turn in the middle. Was a stunningly written novel, I was sorry when it ended. Every character had a sympathetic side...even though it took time to see some of them. This book made me get right online to read her first book, which won a huge amount of awards and accolades. I am a huge reader of fiction and non-fiction and I highly recommend this book.
