From the offset I was drawn to the main character. Her feisty and unrelenting need for justice and equal treatment made her a forced to be reconned with. The story followed at a pace which felt natural and unforced. This is not only a book about lesbian realisation and experiences , but more importantly a piece which deals with all aspects of social injustices, Sexism, Racism, Homophobia and Social classes. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and would recommend to anyone looking to read a book that encaptures the struggles faced by a poor, female, lesbian raised by n a time without tolerance.

Pleasantly surprised by this book. The first three quarters of the book held my attention well, but the end became a little predictable. Worth the read.

A great story written by an amazingly talented writer. If you read this from a LGBT point of thinking, you will be cheering our heroine on. If you read it from a totally straight point of view, you will come away a wiser and happier reader.

Rita Mae West's controversial novel detailing the `fictional' Molly Bolt's sexual awakening and consequent blitz through various institutions and lovers, remains potent stuff, although in today's climate of civil partnerships, gay pride, and wholesale acceptance of homosexuality throughout Western culture, it has lost much of its power to shock. The book's real charm however, is its depiction of a devil-may-care heroine, persistently thumbing her nose at society, and insisting on independence and parity on her own terms - surely a great mandate for how we should all aim to live our lives?
