    One thought on “Among Women

    1. Tori

      I was really looking forward to reading this book. I had read some good reviews and the story sounded interesting, but I was a bit disappointed.My main two problems with this book were a.) It seemed to go slow; it didn't grasp my attention to keep me turning pages but reading a few, putting it down and then coming back with just sheer determination to finish. b.) It was a bit confusing here and there. It took me a while to actually figure out what happened to get her there and everything to fall [...]

      This is a wonderful book about a woman finding her strengths and battling her weaknesses when she is grabbed off the street by the police and locked up in a New Orleans jail. At first it appears she is lost in the system and nobody seems to care. She learns that friendships can be helpful, and enemies can be deadly! To combat boredom, she falls back on an old pastime which inadvertently vaults her social standing within the women's jail giving her near celebrity status among the inmates.As you n [...]

      I must say I wasn't much pulled into the book at the beginning--especially with the comments on lesbianism, when I am gay--but when it got to HOW these chapters on the various women were coming about I couldn't put the book down. It was one of those "just the next chapter" books, which is writing at its finest; it was so fitting given that, in the end, the book itself was about the power of writing. That really struck a cord in me and reminded me of this inner imperative of mine to just write, t [...]

      I got this book as a First Read. It was an interesting read, however I wasn't completely satisfied with the ending. I felt a lot was left unresolved and the background stories (J.D Lorenzo) confused me a little as I could never quite work out what had happened. I didn't feel that Pearl's relationships were developed very much and it was more about what happened once she was in jail and how other women had got there than her as a person.Saying that, it was enjoyable to read and it definitely cha [...]

      If you are looking for pablum, easy spoon-fed and forgettable lines, or mindless entertainment, this isn't it. The heroine of this book isn't an idealized kewpie-doll, either. Pearl Caldwell loses everything at the beginning of the book and hasn't gotten much except her self-respect and a new-found respect for other women by the end of the book. It's a fascinating read, well-written and filled with vivid and sometimes disturbing characters. If your idea of a good read is intelligent writing and [...]

      Life in prison seen from the inside. The style is a bit heavy for my taste. I caught myself looking into the progress made in the book about every other minute. But the stories are compelling, as if this were a compendium of what can go wrong in a female prison. Women ending up in jail for all kinds of spurious reasons. The author keeps a sense of respect and doesn't go dep into any personal story. It's more of an impressionist paintning, some paint brushes here and there and the reader gets the [...]

      Oh Yes You Can Learn From A Fiction Novel ~ I Just DidAmong Women J.M. CornwellI have to say it's been quite some time since I've been so personally pulled into a book that I literally felt as though I was experiencing every emotion, touch, sound, sight, taste, & smell as I did while reading this book. Naturally, those emotions & sensations were not always pleasant. However, the ability of Ms. Cornwell's writing causing me to truly feel what the characters were feeling was definitely a p [...]

      although i don't usually read this type of book i was grabbed and pulled into the story from the first page. i found myself intrigued and fasinated by the story and the characters were a joy to get to know and watch them grow into their own. At first i did not like the heroine and then i found my self rooting for her on the as i watched her change and grow it was a truley wonderful book. it was very easy to become emotionally connected to each of the character(s) and to empathize with them and w [...]

      Insight into the human heart seems to be one of JM Cornwell's specialties. Similar to her hit "Past Imperfect", "Among Women" is a tale of human nature, interpersonal relationships and self-examination. Protagonist Pearl Caldwell learns about herself by learning from others. What motivates Pearl in this story really isn't very different than what motivates her fellow inmates, and Caldwell learns that life isn't always just black and white. "Among Women" is a beautiful story of growth and perspec [...]

      I really enjoyed this book. At first I wasn't the biggest fan of the protagonist, but as the story developed, she changed and grew. She became someone I want to befriend, and the stories she told/wrote about the other inmates were completely engrossing. I was not ready for this book to end when it did and was not pleased with how it ended, but it did leave me hopeful that maybe, just maybe there will be a sequel to wrap up Pearl's story.I'm super glad I won this book in a giveaway and have passe [...]

      I liked the general idea of the story. But felt that there was no point or highlight of the story line. The same things were said over and over and nothing every really happened. I felt disappointed in this story, but felt like it could have gone in so many great directions. I'm not sure I can try and read the sequel, for fear of another long and endless book.

    12. Arielle

      A pretty good book showing how women's prison's are.of course, since I have never been in one, maybe I would change my review, ha. I did not like how the main character was semi-ignored for a large part of her time, and I found that to be pretty unbelievable. If all people were treated like she was, our jails would burst. Interesting side stories of other prisoners.

    13. Hannah

      It was a bit slow to start with but I persevered. I ended up deciding that this just wasn't my kind of book, which is ok, so I didn't finish it, there's no point me reading something I'm not enjoying heaps as I have a mass load of books I want to read. It's all good.
