Journal Entry 4 by Rob-B on Tuesday, April 19, 2005
I read this book in two quick sittings last night. It was good. Not my usual type of reading, but an interesting story of a tragic love. Well written. I have jaynereader's address, so I'll mail it today.

This is my first Jeanette Winterson book and I like her style a lot. This book was quite good but I want to read something else of hers to see if it gets any better. Thanks all, PMing next reader for their address.

Journal Entry 8 by SerenityBlue from Toronto, Ontario Canada on Monday, June 20, 2005
I am glad for seeing this journal entry that reminded me I have sexing the cherry by the same author and should dig it out of my tbr pile to be passed around. I have not got back oranges from Prof Wendi back yet but will do when next we meet also.

arrived yesterday, thanks! Will pm Rico Verde to find out what should happen with it after I've read it.

Journal Entry 12 by wingpam99wing from Ochiltree, Scotland United Kingdom on Sunday, August 14, 2005
Not my usual type of reading although I've read some of her other work. I found this interesting but a bit difficult to get into at times. I know another bookcrosser wants this so I'll get an address and pass it on.

Journal Entry 13 by wingpam99wing from Ochiltree, Scotland United Kingdom on Wednesday, September 07, 2005
on its way to Rossella05 today, apologies for the delay!

Journal Entry 14 by XIV-590003 on Friday, September 09, 2005
Arrived today, thanks pam99. I've read a couple of books by Jeanette Winterson before and enjoyed them very much so I'm looking forward to this one.

Journal Entry 15 by XIV-590003 on Monday, May 28, 2007
I had read 'Oranges are not the only fruit' and 'Sexing The Cherry' by Jeanette Winterson but 'The Passion' is definitely my favourite. I enjoy her unique style and lighthearted approach to complex themes. I'm looking forward to reading 'The Powerbook' currently on my TBR pile.

Journal Entry 22 by LeishaCamden from Alna bydel, Oslo fylke Norway on Saturday, October 04, 2008
I got this book from Jannike at the Oslo meetup yesterday. I'm working on reading as many books from the 1001 list as I can, so this piqued my interest when I saw it on the table. :-) I've read Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by the same author before, and it was a good book, although - I think - very different from this one. Should be interesting. :-)

Journal Entry 23 by LeishaCamden from Alna bydel, Oslo fylke Norway on Friday, September 18, 2009
I've finally read the book now. Here's my review:

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I can't believe I still have this book ... !! :-o So sorry for keeping it so long! Now it's definitely time for it to travel again. I will bring it with me to the extra Oslo meetup this afternoon (in the honor of BCer Nordpirat who's visiting from Sweden :-). I will leave the book in the zone if it doesn't find a new reader at the meetup.

Happy travels, little book!!

Journal Entry 25 by wingNordpiratwing at Bromma, Stockholm Sweden on Saturday, October 25, 2014
Picked up at a book-crossing meet-up in Oslo. I've read a couple of other books by Winterson and I liked them a lot.

Journal Entry 26 by wingNordpiratwing at Bromma, Stockholm Sweden on Thursday, December 11, 2014
I think it is a good novel - mysterious, cruel and beautiful.
I liked this book a little less than the other Winterson-novels I've read. (Oranges are not the only fruit, Gut Symetrics and my so far favourite; Lighthousekeeping.)
But I think it is the story itself that didn't appeal to me as much. I like Wintersons superb way of using the language. She's an excellent writer.

Making a bookray with this book.

Journal Entry 28 by wingsharlanwing at Djura, Dalarna Sweden on Wednesday, February 18, 2015
Just arrived in Djura and will follow me on a trip to Beijing.

Journal Entry 29 by wingsharlanwing at Djura, Dalarna Sweden on Monday, March 16, 2015
Lovely book, few people write like Jeanette Winterson does. There were so many things in it that I just had to write down; thoughts and metaphors - amazing how such a thin little book can contain so much.

And apart from the story itself I was very happy to read a book that has got ten Bookcrossing-years and several countries behind it (I also brought it on a trip to China), with little notes and stickers and messages in it. It makes it feel alive, like the physical book itself has a story to tell.
