I know I don't do book reviews, mostly because I don't read very interesting books, a lot of anita stansfield, which I find very lame....yet I read them. I read the twilight series, again, a little on the lame side (I know I'm offending some, but I promise I don't mean too). I did like the host, I thought it was awesome. I read the Hunger games recently and will read the third one when it comes out, but when I say this is a wonderful book, know I mean it.
It is a book based off of three different southern women from the 1960's point of view, and you don't miss a beat as she switches from one to another. I went to bed at three one night, two the next and one thirty the last. Took me three days to read 446 pages, and all day long I was trying to get my chores done so I could read, but I really only was able to after ten pm. :)
I knew I would enjoy the book because it has to do with civil rights, but I have read a lot of civil rights books that I have had to push my way through. It was really good, and the best part really funny. I don't laugh out loud, but I did. And I was even caught gasping and freaking out a little. I really like it. I fell in love with these women, you are fighting for them and loving them. And as you read you will understand why Minny is my favorite character EVER! :) I was really sad to see it end. (I'm sure my husband was very glad to get his wife back, as were the children. :) ) (don't you hate it when people say "the children" like they don't even know their own kids, to call them by name....gosh)
Read it, you may borrow my copy (After Amy). Sam's club has it, as does walmart.
Now, someone else tell me another really good book to read please. ;)
