    Best of the early days, a must read.

    By far, this is my choice of Herman Wouk's best piece of work. Marjorie is a masterpiece, a brilliant character too alive to settle for anything but her dreams. She is something of an awakening, a sophisticated woman charging through to a universe of disappointments. She breathes through failures and never lets go of her dreams. She is inside all of us. Placed in a generation of social and religious revolution Marjorie's story is elegant and proper while shedding light on the social changes necessary. Marjorie is a story that will enter and stay to linger a lifetime.

    Wonderful Book

    I read this book at the suggestion of a friend. I empathized with Marjorie as a young adult, felt her sorrow and desperation as a young woman, and understood her version of reality as an older mother and wife. I couldn't put this book down!

    Marjorie: A timeless story

    This book has been a favorite of mine and have read it several times. The story of Marjorie is dear to my heart and a must read for anyone that comes from a deeply religious background.

    View to an earlier time.

    I quite like Herman Wouk's historical novels, but this one droned on a bit too much. Wonderful images of time and place, interaction of family and friends, and expectations of a bygone era. . . some of which is still quite relevant today.

    classic

    The classic tale of a young girl's journey to the life she never realized was right for her stands the test of time. I loved reading this as a teenager and re-read and still loved as a grown woman. Wouk has amazing descriptive powers and you can truly 'see' South Wind, West End Ave and pre-war Paris. A perfect rainy day, long plane ride book

    Charming, Stimulating, and Sensational

    I have had a love affair with this wonderful piece of work from the moment I saw the title and began to read Herman Wouk's impeccable literary story. This book is not only compelling but makes the reader feel as if Marjorie truly existed and that these particular events could not be fiction. I fell in love with Marjorie from the moment she appeared on the first page. While her character is not always likeable (she can be selfish and what would now be considered a "drama queen"), she was richly written and created. The philosophical ideas discussed by the characters can make your head swim (depending on your age of course)but make the characters more realistic and decidedly even more charming. I highly reccommend this book as something every coming-of-age girl should read. However, do not read this book if you are looking for something light and gay (happy).

    Long and boring

    I'm Jewish and I didn't even care for this book. It is not a very good coming of age book. The characters are very superficial and the end was a huge disappointment.

    Full range of emotions

    Another masterpiece by Herman Wouk. The character detail is so precise that I never want to see the movie for fear of changing my vision. The emotions and personalities are so real, and I even learned some psychology in this book. The way that the book throws you into the harsh reality of humanity was shocking and reminded me once again how secluded Americans are to what's happening in the rest of the world.

    A good read

    I saw this movie, I think when I was much younger, and I enjoyed reading this book now. It rekindles feelings of what it is like to be so young and in love for the first time. The characters are believable and your own heart wants to help their hearts. . .A good book for a rainy day.

    nostalgia

    I read this book when I was a teen-ager from abroad, studying in the US. I really enjoyed and now, back again visiting US I would like to read it again.
