    "Middlesex is an interesting fiction novel. The story is very long so don't expect to finish it all in one sitting."

    "I was looking for a good book to read when I came across MiddleSex by Jeffrey Eugenides. It is really an interesting read but not exactly what I had in mind. It did win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 2003 so it is well written. The main character is a gay protagonist and he weaves a compelling tale of a generational saga with engaging characters. I love parts of the 500 page story but I just could not relate to it as much, especially the gender stuff."

    "Well, if it's anything to you? Oprah liked it! Now humor aside this book is actually really, really good. However, it's going to depend on your tastes and what you can find yourself absorbed into. This is a very.. specific book? Maybe that's wrong, but I know some will turn their nose up at the summary alone."

    "Book was kind of depressing. I think Oprah tried too hard with her picks. There is nothing wrong with a lightweight and fun story."

    "This one was a rough read for me. I have no doubt of the quality of the writing and the Pulitzer Prize given to this book would back me up on that, but the topic at hand didn't sit quite right with me. It's a topic that interests me a bit but I didn't feel like this book hit on the topics the same way I would have hoped. All that being said, it was worth a single read in my opinion, but it's not something I would ever want to read again."

    "Cool story about Calliope who ends up becoming Cal as he enters his teenage years. For those who struggle with identity and for those looking for a moving story, this book is for you."

    "This is considered a great book, but one I have not read but heard nothing but good things about it."

    "I thought the plot of this book sounded interesting, and it won the Pulitzer Prize, so I figured it had to be good. I could not have been more wrong. A large portion of the book was terribly dull due to a ton of unnecessary detail. And I really did not understand why the author chose the format he did. Maybe it was just all over my head, but I did not enjoy this book at all."

    "After consulting with a friend she recommended Middlesex: A Novel because I wanted a good book to read. I was doubtful it would be any good. I was left with many thoughts about how this book could have been different and not played out the way it actually did. Saying that I think it was a good overall story that missed a few things that would have made better sense. "

    "A spicy throwback to yesteryear! A well thought out book centered around a family in Detroit in this thriller of imagination. It's weaving of storytelling and the end result of a not so subtle twist will leave you grasping for more. It paints a bleak picture during the harshness of the Detroit and Michigan time in the 60's and 70's. It's a gender defying generational saga that hooks you in. "

    "This is a good solution to the topic. This books has over 1000 reviews and almost a 5 star rating. It is hard to tell if it is truly a magical realism based on the description but does seem to have those elements to it which make it good. "
  • Jeffrey Jackson

    "An engaging story, rich and complex, it will remain with most readers for a very long time. I wouldn't go so far as to say I loved it, but I did appreciate it and would certainly recommend the book generally. "
