Helpful Score: 1

Our all women book club read both Gilead and Home. Home is written in a female character voice and so from a female point of view. We enjoyed both of these books. However, we were more "charmed" by Robinson's ability to write with a male's voice in Gilead than in the more familiar female voice. Still both books are remarkable for Robinson's ability to pain vivid pictures of a time long-gone by. Recommended reading for anyone who remembers growing up in the era or who wants to learn more about what life really was like and what mattered to us in the earlier age. Very authenic writing.
