  • Corny delineations between women and men

    This was painful. I loved the Poisonwood Bible, which is by Kingsolver. Prodigal Summer should have worked for me. I wanted to hear all about the wilderness of Appalachia and I love long family histories, but the main characters were phenomenally stunted by their womanhood. Things happened to them. It was exhausting. They were so resentful and unsure. Men just kind of came in and out of their lives like these natural events and they took no responsibility for what they did. The romance writing is corny. As a reader you're bludgeoned with this metaphor, where men are hunters and women are prey, framing all of these plots. It's like sheesh. Ok. I get it. Women are innocent and wild like animals, and men are like, the rational destructive hand of society, acting on fear and reasoning with production, and men are like the earth that women are grounded by, and blah blah blah 🙄 Spoiler in the next paragraph: Around the point that one woman is flirting with a 17 year old relative of a dead husband while offhandedly telling him his married dad was flirting with her as well while blaming all her actions on her menstrual cycle, I dipped. Did I say it was so painful?

    Thanks for your feedback!
