Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bubbies | 2/11/2014

    " The most romantic book i have ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth Marner | 2/5/2014

    " I recently re-read this book. It's very satisfactory. The romance in it is classic. I wouldn't say that it merits the status of "Desert of the Heart." On the other hand, if it were made into a movie I might feel differently about it. Read it. You won't be disappointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maxine Byrne | 2/1/2014

    " Exellent book! There is a part in the book that dips and you may want to give up.... DONT! it's well worth it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brittany | 1/31/2014

    " I can see why this was groundbreaking at the time but the story doesn't quite hold up as well. Really more a sexy novel than one with substance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joie | 1/27/2014

    " This book in my opinion is one of the best lesbian romances out there. I happen to be a big fan of Katherine Forrest and this is her best book by far "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie Winn | 1/17/2014

    " Was given to me as a gift. Great love story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 1/12/2014

    " I read this classic lesbian romance in one sitting on a Sunday afternoon. The plot was fairly predictable, but I still enjoyed the story very much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 12/22/2013

    " OK, it's a romance novel. A fun, steamy lesbian one--but a romance novel none the less. If you don't expect too much from it, it's a fun read. Curious Wine was evidently quite scandalous for its time (published 1983) but it almost seems quaint today. I'd recommend it for the beach. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonny | 12/20/2013

    " A captivating novel full of sensual magic in the love story between two women. It will make you laugh, feel on edge and maybe even cry. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 11/23/2013

    " A true classic - whether you're gay, straight or bisexual - every woman should read this book just once in their lifetime. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina Barnett | 11/21/2013

    " Delicious and seductive lesbian love story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 11/16/2013

    " Argh. So many mixed feelings about this book. Need to mull it over before I can review it. ... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen Sheehan | 8/25/2013

    " lesbian pulp written by a sister for the sisters! sloppy and romantic -- completely unrealistic but a nice touch of naughty. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kylie | 8/14/2013

    " I haven't read this in years but it is just the classic Naiad Romance--one of the first lesbian fiction novels I ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ilse | 6/16/2013

    " Een prachtig boek over een eerste liefde. Gelukkig dat het hele vraagstuk over het omgaan met een verliefdheid van een vrouw op een andere vrouw ondertussen van een vorige eeuw is. De beleving en ontdekkingstocht van de echte liefde die erin beschreven staat is tijdsloos. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kat Jackson | 11/10/2012

    " It was certainly dated, but she wrote that feeling so well, the thing you try to explain to your friends and family, but can't. I thought it was a wonderful story and I've fallen for Katherine Forrest's writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 9/8/2012

    " You want lesbian romance? You've got it. A relationship between two adult women who are discovering themselves, that's what this is. Lovely literary references. Interesting chemistry with other characters. And a quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 katie | 6/8/2012

    " I love this book, but I can't help wishing it was just ... a bit different. The story's wonderful, it's the context that irritates me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana Waldron | 5/18/2012

    " Enjoyable, though dated. I enjoyed reading about the Lake Tahoe setting while vacationing there. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Devilshomie | 4/20/2012

    " Too descriptive, not enough character development, I think this was the authors personal fantasy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Agirlcandream | 4/19/2012

    " Dated, but a classic to be sure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 3/26/2012

    " One of the first books I read about lesbian love... And it's my favorite 'oldtimer' :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Puja | 12/19/2011

    " emotional and hot quick read lesbian romance deal... you know, where lovers fall and commit to each other in the matter of minutes. i read the whole story in one sitting on a park bench in downtown kalamazoo. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Hauck | 8/25/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison | 4/9/2011

    " i still would recommend this book but with the caveat that it is terrible "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 4/9/2011

    " one of the first lesbian romances I read and one of my favorites

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natasha | 8/21/2010

    " As far as lesbian romances go it's pretty good for something written in 1984. A bit cheesy but what do you expect? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Devilshomie | 7/19/2010

    " Too descriptive, not enough character development, I think this was the authors personal fantasy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamika | 12/12/2009

    " This book was very familiar for me, so I liked it. It's obviously dated and a little cheesy, but I enjoyed it and it was a quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Salud | 9/25/2009

    " I read this over 20 years ago and at the time I thought it was magnificent. I reread it about 15 years ago and I couldn't get over how cheesy it was. The love scenes were great, but the rest of it...eh. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy | 6/13/2009

    " I guess this is supposed to be lesbian erotica, or some sort of lesbian love novel...perhaps if you're a straight white man. Seriously, this book is ridiculous. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne | 4/11/2009

    " I haven't read this in years but it is just the classic Naiad Romance--one of the first lesbian fiction novels I ever read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Avory | 2/3/2009

    " This is a very dated book, and a bit in the cheesy romance novel genre. There are some things about it that feel very real, but a lot of it makes me think of bad early 90s hair and the world of the perma-closet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 12/17/2008

    " Many years ago this was passed around Tokyo. Not a favorite, but deserves credit as a ground breaker. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 7/6/2008
