book review

Not from me, from you.

I know most of you have read The Secret Life of Bees, by Sue Monk Kidd. What did you think of it?

I did not read it... but it was very popular and I had a good friend that did and loved it. Why?

I enjoyed the writing and the parlells about the bees. There were times it got too into the sacred feminine for me, but it was fiction so I enjoyed it anyway. I didn't enjoy the Mermaid Chair as much.

LOVED it, loved it, loved it.

I LOVE the sacred feminine (generally, and in this book), loved the stuff about community, etc.

Have you read it?

Hi Stephanie! Yes, I did graduate, which is exciting. However, I do not have any plans yet. I am in the midst of sending out resume after resume and interviewing (for counseling jobs). I'm staying in Wilmore until I have a clear direction. Thanks for asking! How are you doing? Hope you are doing well.

I just finished it (read it in the bookstore, Valerie, and thought of you =). I liked it. It is a little too sacred feminine for me, too, but most of you would LOVE that part of it. Plus, it's fiction. I rarely read a fiction book that suits me theologically.

But it was good fiction. I really liked it.

So, you would recommend it for my next possible read??

Valerie said...

You should SO read it, yes.
