Good but Different

by Catherine G on Nov 17, 2011

This story is the coming of age of a hermafrodite, And also the story of his grandparents, which is quite colorful. It is easy reading and keeps your interest. More

Surpisingly, I liked it! 4.5 stars!

by pamela1717 on Jun 29, 2008

I'll have to join the ranks of many of the other reviewers here and say I probably never would have read this book if it hadn't been chosen for my book club. I, too, thought the story would be a one dimensional search for gender identity--not so. I was hooked from the beginning. I would describe the ... More

Y E S ! ! !

by Nana38 on Jan 11, 2008

I was hooked by the opening sentence and taken on a journey into another world. This is an outstanding example of how fiction can educate and enlighten us. The author has created a hero (heroine) we can admire, empathize with and laugh with through a difficult life changing self discovery. A perfect ... More

Truly I was amazed that not only was this a bestseller but also a Pulitzer prize winner too. Essentially Middlesex is two novels in one. The first half ... More

Well worth reading

by Jendee on Jan 3, 2008

This book was recommended by my bookclub, and I would probably not have picked it out at the bookstore (or Alibris!). I was suprised at how quickly the story captured my interest and all in all it was a facinating read. I even gave a copy to my sister as a Christmas gift! She loved it! Jen More
