review 1: This is one of the most readable books I've had my hands on in a while. I read it in almost one sitting, and I am not a fast reader (or a long sitter for that matter, these days).The most refreshing aspect of the book is its accessibility. Reading the novel, I actually felt like I was sitting in the same room with the characters, part of their conversations, in conversation with them. It's a coming of age story in a particular time ('80s) and place (Bay Area, Cali). However, For the May Queen succeeds in universalizing the emotions and human circumstances of its characters. Recommendable for anyone making that awkward transition into early adulthood and selfhood. Also for anyone wanting to take a look back, to remember, or maybe even to grapple with the closed closets of t... morehe past.
review 2: WOW!!! It's been a very long time since I gobbled up a book like this one. I read it in about 8 hours (maybe less). This book is the type that you sit and read and the next thing you know, you're 50 pages in.The characters in this book are VERY easy to relate to. If you don't know a Chuck, a Norma, a Liz, or a Stacy, you know someone that knows one. From the first word of the first sentence, I was captivated by Norma. Although my dorm experience was very different, I could totally relate. I could feel what Norma felt. I felt her humiliation, her confusion, and her sadness. I found myself reading a red lights (not recommended), cooking dinner, even walking to the bus stop. Definitely a MUST READ..... less
