Although i had a hard time getting in to this book because it was slow I’m really glad I didn't give up on this book.

The Glass Swallow is a well-written, cute book with a happy ending that shines.  The protagonist, Rain is strong-willed and straight-forward. Peri, a man she meets in her travels, is pulled along by her current.  I loved the books and I loved the characters.  It was a great breather from the everthing-that-can-go-bad-will-and-the-main-character-will-be-screwed.

Golding has once again created a book that holds the interest of the reader from start to finish. I am always wary when I pick up a book from an author I've read before and liked. I dread reading one of their books and finding that I dislike it immensely. This is not the case with this book. 5 out of 5 for a captivating, orginal read.

  1. I loved the names first of all. The main character Rain faces prejudices againist women in our own hometown and I love the fact that from the very beginning her loving father supports her secretly in progressing in her talents. Sweet little story with good morales and a good message.
