    "The Wide Sargasso Sea tales a story that anybody can relate to even today its not what you think it is when you first start reading it but you will be happy that it it isnt"

    "Jean Rhys' Wide Sargasso Sea is a compelling read on so many fronts it is hard to list them all in a short space. Rhys early career was astonishing and she returns with a story for the ages incorporating much of her well known, by now, women characters and twists from other novels in an unexpected manner. You must read this if the genre is at all to your liking. Highest marks. "

    "Wide Sargasso Sea is a powerful examination of psychology. I read this for a psychology class, in fact. It's ostensibly a romance, but it's a dark one - a powerful examination of identity, culture, and psychological limits. Antoinette, the heroine, descends into madness as she's forced to adapt to the culture of Victorian England. A must-read!"

    "This book is just what I am looking for. It definitely has the setting in the topic. This is right on point."

    "If you like books about far-away places, this is the book for you. I couldn't put it down!"

    "This book touches on three favorite genres of mine: exotic destinations, romance, and the Victorian period. What a treasure this book is! The main character is a wealthy Creole heiress to a fortune named Antoinette, who ends up meeting a man who traveled from England to Jamaica for business. This is a classic story of opposites attracting, which is always a lovely trope for a romance novel."

    "I went in to Wide Sargasso Sea expecting an exciting historical novel, and ended up with a boring slog. The story more or less hinges on your investment with the main character, a woman in an unhappy arranged marriage. I didn't really have any interest in her, so the rest of the story fell flat for me."

    "The Wide Sargasso Sea is a classic novel written in the early days of america about a classic story of love crossing boundaries of culture. Some of the stuff is dated by todays standards, but it's an intriguing look at how the world used to work."

    "Out of all the titles books have I love Wide Sargasso Sea. It sounds so elegant, it makes you want to read the book. This classic book is about a Creole heiress in the 1830s Jamaica that is forced to become a sophisticated Victorian lady because of her marriage to an Englishman. The title itself is very beautiful.
