5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 23 May 2014

This review is from: The Salt Roads (Kindle Edition)
An incredible book. The language, the hyper-reality of bodies and embodied experience, the foregrounding of queer relationships -- just amazing and wonderful and harrowing and brilliant.

The one knock against it was that I felt Meritet's narrative diffused the effect of the other two -- that it started too late in the book and unbalanced things. I can think of any number of reasons to justify its inclusion, but I felt the execution -- especially when compared to the immense success of Mer and Jeanne's respective threads -- was lacking, and I think it would've been a stronger book without it, possibly, for all that I loved Meritet herself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as other works, 22 Nov 2012

This review is from: The Salt Roads (Hardcover)
Not as great as her other works ' brown girl in the ring' is a masterpiece. Whilst not trying to give the plot away, would have loved to read more of the character Mer.
