Interesting read - starts off slow but culminates into a surprisingly touching story. The three characters merge into one story that is tied together not only narratively but emotionally. Keep the tissues close!

Winner of Pulitzer Prize. Having seen the film version of this book, I was surprised that I was able to read it until the end. It is well written novel about three women whose lives are entwined. It is sad and uplifting at same time because it allows women space to be different from the "normal" version of women. There is an element of Lesbianism in all these women's lives although it is not made the most significant element of the novel.

This book is a Pulitzer Prize winner and a great read. The story of 3 women envelope you during this read. I felt real empathy for the characters and could relate to many of the feelings so eloquently expressed in the book. A great opportunity to reflect on our own lives.

1999 Pulitzer Prize and 1999 Pen/Faulkner award. This treasure inspired me to try to read all Pulitzer award-winning novelists' work (I'm still reading, of course). The movie was very enjoyable, but the book was even more profound. The language is beautiful and takes on a life of its own. The book will certainly have a special place on my bookshelf - among my favorites.

This is one of the best books I've ever read - brilliant and moving, and the way everything ties together and the three plots connect....simply lovely.

I could not get interested in this book. I'm not sure if it was the narrator's monotone or the story itself that turned me off, but I listened to the first disc and gave up.
