  1. Great review. I’ve been eyeing this book for some time, but wasn’t sure if I would like it. Your review made me decide to give it a shot. Thanks, Nicole!

  2. I really liked this book too. It took me a little time to get used to the way the story narrated (by one sister then the next), but I was pulled in by the odd quirky family.

  3. I’m reading this right now and thought I was the last person in the world to do so. I’m finding it delightful! Did I mention that Eleanor Brown is doing a lunch here Saturday? I can’t wait!

  4. I love how you interpreted that collective voice, and you are right…it is like the reasonable fourth sister. I would think this was right up your alley too with all that Shakespeare love. My book club read this, and we all agreed that if our fathers had been spewing the Bard in such a way, we would have gone crazy. Eleanor came down to Orlando last spring for our book festival and she was a total treat.

  5. We read this for book club and it was such an amazing read! I loved it and would love to read it again. You make a great point about the collective voice of the narrative being like a character in itself. I loved this review, and thought that it was extremely well written and very perceptive!

  6. Martha @ Hey, I want to read that

    I really did adore this book. I love any book in which the characters read. I’m surprised more authors don’t do that. You’re right about the language, it really is made for reader (which should be said about every book-but really can’t be). Wonderful review.
