Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 2/16/2014

    " Memorable! Hilarious in parts, sad in parts--thirty years later I still remember this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stuart | 2/6/2014

    " Ginny is bonkers. Brilliant story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 2/3/2014

    " Wow! I was amazed to find so many reviews on this book. I went to school with the author's sister in "Hullsport" and the book got some pretty scathing reviews from the locals at the time. I need to re-read it as an adult without the parental biases and defiance to it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hazel | 1/15/2014

    " Perhaps I should persevere with this. After all, Doris Lessing praised it. But it doesn't speak to me at all. It may be dated, a typical 1970s feminist novel that I mght have liked in my teens or twenties. Today, I'm giving up less than halfway through. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roy | 1/9/2014

    " Highly praised period piece. Not Salinger, but very well done to the point of actuall being interesting most of the time. Wanted more resonance with my own experience, but you can't expect that to happen very often, can you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lily Luoma | 12/23/2013

    " I read this decades ago and still remember how much it made me laugh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy Kaylor | 11/22/2013

    " Weird but great and filled with little truths. I still quote this book sometimes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vaibhavdhote | 8/17/2013

    " i had so much fun reading this one. its kinky and funny at the right places. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 7/22/2013

    " I first read this years ago and loved it. I was a young adult trying to find where I fit in the world so Kinflicks resonated with me. It made me laugh, cringe uncomfortably and laugh again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martin Bonfil | 3/18/2013

    " Read and enjoyed almost 30 years ago!! Seem to remember it's sense of life and the unique experience (for me a young male at the time) of seeing the world through a female protagonist's eyes. Probably need to re-read and see what I think now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marjorie | 3/14/2012

    " A good book despite the main character being a little annoying. I found it hard to sympathise with her, and she ended up in some bizarre and often funny situations. It is a fascinating insight into feminist views of 30 years ago, and life in the deep south. Odd ending but I still rate this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie Pinto | 8/23/2011

    " I read this decades ago, but still remember how often it made me laugh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 8/15/2011

    " One of my favorite novels from the feminist era. Hilarious, sad, dramatic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha Abelson | 7/31/2011

    " This book was the reason I decided to major in Women and Gender Studies. A wonderful bildungsroman... especially for women. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 lucy by the sea | 6/20/2011

    " Bizarre book. It seems pretty normal coming of age narrative but then it has crazy sort of unbelievable shit too. I liked it, it kept me reading. I thought the characters were flat though, Ginny was shallow and cold, her mother bitter and cold and the only character I really felt for was poor Wendy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave Riley | 2/12/2011

    " I have to read this wonderful book again. It ruled me back when it came out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikki Lengkeek | 11/3/2010

    " Read and enjoyed about 25 years ago. At the time it made a big impact with a strong female protagonist. I recall it seemed to give me some insight into my mother's life which helped. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gail | 4/24/2010

    " Some parts of this book had me laughing til the tears came. What is it about us southerners. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 2/28/2010

    " Too much information--very raunchy about a womans journey through bad marraige and her stab at being a lesbian and the gory details of her sex life with both Genders-- save this for Penthouse Pulease. "

    " I read her in High school and got hooked on all her books. She writes a good, funny romance, but she isn't everyone's cup of tea. "
