Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon | 1/29/2014

    " Another book I had a hard time getting through -- this one just seemed to drag on and on. The story itself could have been so interesting, but I feel like the writing should have been much tighter to hold my attention. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren Hahn | 1/8/2014

    " This book was a huge dissapointment. The reader is forced to listen to the story of a woman who leads an unhappy and meaningless life. Throughout the eventless book you keep waiting for something to occur to make reason of the narrator's purpose in life, but instead find out that she is simply a pathetic and unhappy person. In the last few pages a huge twist occurs, but it is simply too late to indulge the reader, and is to much to take into too short of an amount of time. The only thing stopping me from giving this book a one is that the book was well written. "

    " "The Book of Ruth" is exquisitely written and disturbingly powerful. The story illustrates the painful life of dimwitted Ruth and how a single decision would change the landscape of her existence forever. This book is a page turner through to the end, and the climax is agonizing. I will not forget these characters for a long time. Beware that this book is NOT a warm & fuzzy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Della Scott | 1/4/2014

    " No need to recommend, I've read it. I didn't like it as much as A Map of the World, though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linds Mdo | 1/4/2014

    " This book is depressing and pointless. Stay away! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danna Currie | 12/31/2013

    " This novel deeply impressed me with its portrayal of a young woman coming of age in less than fortunate circumstances. Often disturbing and jarring, it also resonates with compassion, yearning, and humanity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie | 12/10/2013

    " Disturbing, but I found myself relating to the narrorator in surprising ways. Well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gregg Martinson | 11/29/2013

    " Very good illustration of what can happen in a family with challenged members. She's a good writer and writes clear, bleieveable characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alana | 11/1/2013

    " The author foreshadows with a sledgehammer and not a single character in the book is 'likeable' except possibly Matt, and he wasn't really in the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leah | 10/22/2013

    " Here's what I remember about this one: DEPRESSING. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dal Hun | 10/17/2013

    " I bought this book from the bookshelf in the second hand bookstore. While I have already knew this book from the list of Oprah's bookclub, I picked up this book without hesitation. However, it turned out that not all books are good just because they are in the Oprah Bookclub list. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacie | 9/27/2013

    " Quite an unusual book from the very beginning and most disturbing at times but I did enjoy it and would recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jordan | 6/15/2013

    " Wish I could find the movie...It was a great novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaina | 4/10/2013

    " I remember this being just kind of ok. Summer reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Holli | 8/12/2012

    " Poor southern woman has bad marriage, and struggles through life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yogapam | 4/12/2012

    " I love this book, it is probably at the top of my list of favourites. I have read it three times, once on my own and for two different book clubs. It is a sad story, but so authentic and well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vinita | 9/23/2011

    " Maybe 4 stars...the story was compelling. Some characters were profoundly unlikeable - as I'm sure Hamilton intended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara Lamers | 8/8/2011

    " I read this one again and again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lois | 3/28/2011

    " Loved Map of the World so much, I decided to try another by Jane Hamilton. This novel is narrated by Ruth and is the story of her challenges. Hamilton creates interesting small-town characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne Kiwi | 6/1/2010

    " I loved this book. Not only was it extremely well written, but the plot and character development were excellent as well. There are aspects of the main character that I could totally identify with while at the same time being removed and horror stricken at her awful life. Highly recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gale | 5/11/2010

    " Mother verbally abuses daughter as chil & adult, mom jealous of daughter's marriage, "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Missa | 3/10/2010

    " I thought this book stunk... I read it because Oprah made me do it. I won't read this author again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jocelyn | 1/11/2010

    " Read for a school project. I personally found it very easy to relate to the main character. The book is very detail-oriented,so it can sometimes be aggravating to read. Overall good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Synesthesia | 1/8/2010

    " Dude, what is up with Oprah books and sheer depressingness? I'm not saying this isn't a good book, it is. It's narrator is interesting and a bit too compassionate, but dang was reading it just a bit traumatizing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marisa | 12/5/2009

    " This book was awful, boring and hard to get through. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dawn | 5/15/2009

    " I cannot remember a thing about this book, that should tell you something. "
