Reviews of Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

This book had me chuckling out loud on so many occasions, her attention to detail in this portrayal of a strict religious upbringing and coming of age/self discovery journey brings the place and characters alive. Wintersons plays with the use of allegorical fantasy - this didn't work so well for me, but she has used it to better effect in subsequent stories. A great read.


Good Book

I really enjoyed this book. It is stylistically and thematically complex and interesting, and is a good addition to any library.
