( Free Book ) ♐ Loving Her: A Novel ♘ MOBI eBook or Kindle ePUB free

Again, I d probably give it closer to a 2.5 but it must be said From a literary perspective, this book is almost meritless It s horribly written The good things about it are its interesting plot and its importance as one of the first books of its kind, etc Still, I can t fault anyone who reads a couple of pages and is deterred by the horrifying prose. This book took me longer to read due to life events, but that s not to say that I was being purposely slow in reading it Far from it Quick noteAt the beginning of my version, there was a critique a discussion of the book s groundbreaking nature In the middle of this reading, I decided to ditch it and read it after I had finished the book If you have not read the book before, I strongly recommend you read this part after the book There are spoilers in the section that give away bits wh This book took me longer to read due to life events, but that s not to say that I was being purposely slow in reading it Far from it Quick noteAt the beginning of my version, there was a critique a discussion of the book s groundbreaking nature In the middle of this reading, I decided to ditch it and read it after I had finished the book If you have not read the book before, I strongly recommend you read this part after the book There are spoilers in the section that give away bits which was the reason I stopped reading it Again, normally, I skip those parts, but this one was especially interesting and read very quickly.Onething in my version, some times, in the writing formatting, there was no real separation from one event to the next First we were one place, and then, seeming in the next breath, we were an afternoon, evening, even next day ahead in time A simple fix would have been to break the paragraphs with extra spaces, or place dashes , or between these parts As it was, it was a little confusing at times Now, on with the review I am not an African American woman I do not pretend to understand the issues facing African American women, yesterday and today though, sadly yesterday still feels like today in many ways However, I have experienced some mean and dangerous derogatory slurs against me, and for that I can empathize with those racial issues And that is the crux of the plot in this story The protagonist is looking at herself, her brothers and sisters and how they judge her for what is natural to her, and how they react to something that is uncomfortable for them, and outside their realm of understanding, made worse by the fact that she is a lesbian.I loved this book This is the kind of book that feels timeless to me I disregarded some of the issues that the reviewer spoke about archaic word and phrase selections, and just enjoyed the book for what it is I am so glad that I am a vicarious and voracious reader I am so glad that this book was on sale for me to buy I am sad because it took me so long to read it But I am glad because it opened me up to this wonderful writer and I have actually purchased her collection of short stories because of this book since reading this one.Part of the timelessness that I mentioned as I read this book, I was trying to figure out what year it was written I knew it was after the sixties, from clues that were given I also knew that it wasn t later than the eighties At the end of the book, the copyright was 1974 I guess what I am saying here is that it is as relevant today as it was then The extras are stripped away in the book, leaving the barebones and a wonderful story.The plot progresses as you expect it would, but it does in such away that it s not until the end where I look back and say did that just happen A book where things right itself in the end Where one lesbian in the coupling doesn t run off and marry a man or commits suicide or leaves the reader depressed beyond belief Because as groundbreaking as this delightful book is about interracial lesbian relationships, for me, it is groundbreaking in that it is uplifting as well.It may be hard for some to look past certain aspects of this book, but for me, it left me happy I loved these characters for all their warts, dreams, failures, and hopes I wishliterary lesbian books reached this same conclusion Holy crap do the characters in this book drink all the time or what I found this in a free book box and kind of enjoyed it from a history perspective and also a that s a hilarious way to talk about women having sex perspective.

Loving HerAn important book by one hell of a writer, Loving Her is an incredible read chocked full of witicisms and plagiarisms It is just plain incredible as good a read for anyone as it was for me This is a classic novel from the 1970 s and is most known for its portrayal of an interracial lesbian couple The writing isn t fantastic, and it certainly is depressing is spots, but is worth the read as a trail blazer. Loving Her might have been a better story if it was written better I enjoyed the story.This book was written back in 1974 which was ahead of its time If this book was rewritten it would be a far better andenjoyable book to read. interesting plotI found the book to have a well developed plot I kept wanting to know what would happen next I would like to see a sequel that continues to develop the characters Offhand I probably would not have bought the book But I was able to get free, so I did
