A landmark coming-of-age novel that launched the career of one of this country??s most distinctive voices, Rubyfruit Jungle remains a transformative work more than forty years after its original publication. In bawdy, moving prose, Rita Mae Brown tells the story of Molly Bolt, the adoptive daughter of a dirt-poor Southern couple who boldly forges her own path in America. With her startling beauty and crackling wit, Molly finds that women are drawn to her wherever she goes??and she refuses to apologize for loving them back. This literary milestone continues to resonate with its message about being true to yourself and, against the odds, living happily ever after.

This one was slow to start-- some bits of her childhood made me a bit nauseous. I read it in a few days, and I think I liked it fine at the time, but now I'm kind of hard-pressed to remember anything about it. I'd like to give it about 2 1/2 stars, I suppose. ( )

An original from 1973--Molly Bolt, the adopted daughter of poor parents in PA who move to Florida, forges her own path. As she works to sort out her sexuality and choose a career, she makes it to NY and film school. She is strong, she is her own person, and she goes her own way.

This book was fine reading it now, the audio was good. But I wonder how much of a stir this book caused when it first came out--a lesbian main character, a smart-as-a-whip adopted daughter, a young woman choosing to chase her dreams rather than cave to family/social/departmental pressure and games. I feel like the experience of reading this 50 years after publication is just not the same as it would have been at the time. Groundbreaking? ( )

How can such an awful book be praised so much? This thing is such a disgusting mess of poor writing, disgusting protagonist, anti-heterosexual, and racist garbage. The dialogue was so terribly written, I thought a fifth-grader did it. Do yourself a favor and skip this one. ( )

I really got into it when she made it to NYC ( )

Dedicated to ALEXIS SMITH. Actress, Wit, Beauty, Cook, Kindheart, Irreverent Observer of Political Phenomena, Etc. If I were to list her outstanding qualities, you, dear reader, would be exhausted before you get to page one. So let me just say the abovementioned women took the time to give me a playful push in the direction of my typewriter. Of course, after you read the book, you may wish that she had pushed me in front of something moving faster than a typewriter.
