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.

A pretty good book, though it was sometimes a little strange. I would recommend it to young women or mature readers. It's very funny at times and made me laugh out loud, but it also made me cry.

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.

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.

I initially got really into this book. Loved the characters immediately. About halfway through, the book started to limp. The ending was just a fizzle. I also thought the book 'wandered' as the author wrote pages upon pages about the river and it's history. If I had wanted to know that much about it, I would have read a history book. It's as if the author was trying to bulk up the book or prove how in-depth the research had been.

I did not hate it, but I was definitely less than in love with it. I bought it on the way to the beach last year because I had left my Harry Potter book at home; should have left well enough alone. The plot is disjointed and forced. When I got to the end, I wasn't really sure what had happened or where the story went wrong.

I recieved this book for Christmas this year, and finished it in about 3 days. I thought that it was a pretty accurate description of southern life, college days, etc. The ending did leave me hanging a little, but I like that- it gives the reader an opportunity to formulate their own opinions. All in all, I would defintely recommend this book!

I'm about 3/4 of the way through this book and am asking myself, 'what is this book about exactly?' I do not agree with another reviewer who said it was vulgar. If you want vulgar, read Our Lady of the Forest. However, both books are disappointing and I am at a loss as to why they are bestsellers.

Or does it really? Southern women in your 50's is this how it really was/is? After thirty years of living in the south I still have a hard time believing women really grew up so silently, or should I say so alone? These characters feel so alone, so unconnected -- how sad? Why doesn't anyone say what they are really thinking? Interesting--but, I was expecting more depth.

What a great novel from one of the country's best southern writers! This tale of friends coming to terms with the past and finding their way through middle age left me in tears and laughter. Lee Smith does not disappoint us with this long awaited new novel.

Loved it!

I was intrigued by the premise and totally let down by the execution. I neither cared about nor identified with any of the women. I would hope that my reunions with college friends are never this dull and unimportant.
