Book Review: The Powerbook

The Powerbook by Jeanette Winterson

This is such a beautiful book. The cover is also one of my favorites. Jeanette Winterson is one of my favorite authors because of the ways she makes me think about and feel emotion. This book came out in 2000 and I tried reading it several times without luck. I believe you really have to be in a Winterson mindset to fully understand and appreciate where she is taking you since she interweaves stories and often goes off path. The overall theme of this novel is loving what you cannot have.

Kim's Grade: A Read it on a rainy weekend with a cozy blanket.
