    "This isn't my usual type of book but I have no regrets reading it. I was never Catholic, but growing up, I knew several people who were and I was fascinated by the ritual of it all. These rituals and symbiology play a big part in this book and I'm sure a practicing Catholic would appreciate reading about them. "

    "Pretty neat book for those of the faith. Even if you aren't a christian you may find some inspiration in this book. I read this over the weekend, which is pretty crazy for me. It usually takes me a week to read through a book. But this really caught my attention and made me reflect on my religion. Certainly was worth the purchase."

    "I Thirst is a book I recommend to the teens at my church for the time around Lent. It has a wonderful story but manages to incorporate Christian poetry and lessons. Unlike many YA novels today, it is not an exploration of sexual relationships and drama, which is a refreshing change. "

    " liked this book even though it is not a style I typically read. I purchased it knowing that from its reviews. At times the language reminded me a little of Margaret Atwood, Donna Tartt, and Sylvia Plath, yet it often has characteristics of YA, which I read a lot. Prose sometimes takes the form of verse, as I've seen in some recent YA, and some true verse is in Spanish, a language I love but need to bone up on. I normally don't read prologues and seldom epilogues but read both in this book, particularly curious about the prologue, which won an award. I thought the prologue was good, although the author might have described the picture frame as containing a photo of a young boy to give the reader that light-bulb moment later. The epilogue provided a glimmer of hope for future romance that I expect from contemporary YA."

    "An odd book, that uses a story within a story approach, which largely works, but serves to help bog down the overall tale and highlight the fact that not a whole lot is really going on. It's very beautifully written, but a bit dull and sacrifices substance, for style. "

    "This is a great Catholic book for true Catholics. If you consider yourself one you need to read this book."

    "Wasn't a fan of how the book was written. It just simply wasn't my style and not what I'm used to."

    "This was a great read for me as a Catholic teenager. I was weary at first because the title seemed a little inappropriate for my age group, but it was a really great young adult read. I related well to the main character, Rebecca, and love that the book takes place in a Catholic environment. However, some of the reading was a bit complex for me."

    "While I Thirst is a fantastic book, well plotted, thought out and full characters, I do not think it fits the bill as Catholic fiction. I'm sure there are other books that would be better suited for the best in catholic fiction. This one is definitely a good read though."

    "I really enjoyed the almost poetic writing style of I Thirst but the lack of conflict or well anything kind of made me wonder why I read it in the first place. Dont' get me wrong I loved the style but it felt like nothing happened in the entire book."

    "I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to more from the author. It is very well written and the story flows from beginning to end."

    "I was looking for an adult fiction book for my high school son and I cam e across I Thirst by Gina Marinello-Sweeney. It's a perfect book for that age group and is very well written. He even used this book for his high school language arts book reports assignment."
