Read full description of the books Pitija:I was going to give this book 4 stars, as it has clearly been published as a first draft and could have achieved greater things if Golding had gotten the chance to revise and develop it.
However, even though it hasn't reached its full potential, to me it is a five-star book. It is still going to be one of the best books I will read in 2015.
I was deeply impressed with the sensitivity and empathy Golding showed when writing in the voice of a young girl. This book is really about womanhood, and its contradictions, challenges and heartbreaks. There are some beautiful ideas in it that are unforgettable. Most predominant is the theme that women are "prized, but not rewarded" for their qualities, such as their beauty or virginity.
I'm still turning the book over in my mind and expect it will reveal some new insights to me as I continue to think about it. I highly, highly recommend it.
