    1. If your trust of men is already on shaky ground, don t read this book yet Then, when you do pick it up, be prepared for a psychological roller coaster.

    2. This book tells the stories of two women Juletane, a woman who has moved to Africa from France for her husband, and Helene, a woman who reads Juletane s diary The book shows how the effects of colonialism, of being an outsider, and of clashing cultures I read this book today in about 2 hours because it s both short 84 pages my kids will love this and engaging.

    3. A quick read and a great book The story is told by both Juletane in her diary and by H l ne as she reads the diary It s a frightening look at the mental decline of a woman who moves to her husband s African homeland following their marriage Definitely eye opening to those of us who live complacent American lives.

    4. Lots to be said on this one in regards to feminism, colonialism, and mental health If any of those things interest you you should pick this one up Unfortunately I was too overwhelmed with end of quarter reading and writing to sink my teeth too deeply into it enough to give a full review, but it s short enough that it could be re read easily

    5. The passivity of Juletane was frustrating and endlessly saddening but when she finally snapped, you kinda get a sense of how madness really starts from She s directionless, ignored, hopeless, jealous, bitter, disappointed and for that to go on for years, something has really gotta tick It just reminds you that no matter how vulnerable or defenseless a creature may seem, never underestimate the resentment that can brew beneath the surface.

    6. I read this for my Institute of Adult Learning French Novels in Translation class, so of course it was depressing and dreary However, it had a plot, a beginning, a middle and an end, and many women s issues, so it will make for a good discussion.

    7. A interesting read Multiple levels of exploring what it means to be an outsider and what it means to marry It was a really quick read, which was for the best because the passivity of Juletane might have proved frustrating over a longer novel.
