couldn't put it down, 4 May 2000
In Educating Rita, Rita is so enraptured by this book that she changes her name from Susan to Rita. I can see why she did so. It is a voyage of self-discovery for Molly Bolt and she is thwarted at every turn. You laugh and cry with her. The injustices she faces are hard rendering and the novel is written so beautifully that you feel what Molly feels. It shows how backward and prejudiced people can be, and the scary thing is, views haven't changed that much. I couldn't put it down. It was brilliant.
