5.0 von 5 Sternen Simple words for simple wording
I have been reading all of the customer reviews, and it seems that they have been missing the whole point of this book. By no means is this a "lesbian" book, or a book that completely focuses on dealing with "coming out". Nor should this book be read exclusively by lesbians. It's a book that simply follows a unique, strong young woman from when...

3.0 von 5 Sternen A little dated (but then it IS 26 years old)
This is my second reading of Rubyfruit Jungle. I read this one back in the mid-80's, right around the time I heard Rita Mae Brown speak at Gay Games II in Kezar Stadium, San Francisco. Back then the book was considered a landmark. But reading it now it is not hard to see how far the gay movement has come. I have often thought that in the 50's, 60's and 70's nearly any...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best summer read yet, 21. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rubyfruit Jungle (Taschenbuch)
There's hardly enough words to describe this book, and the feeling you get whilst reading it. Just one of those books that rejuvenates your soul after you've finished it. It's funny that others should mention the fact that they had to hide the book from others -- I, unfortunately, had to do that too.. But it was worth all the trouble!!
A definite must for those who enjoyed J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye

5.0 von 5 Sternen Must-read !!!!!!, 26. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rubyfruit Jungle (Taschenbuch)
Rubyfruit Jungle is one helluva-romp through the bad times and the good. i really like the scenes where Molly gets hot with her gym teacher and cried when she shared the pain of those awkward steps out of thecloset that opporesses all wimmin who Dare to come out of the closet. I really reccommend this book for all lesbians, young or old.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Definitely worth reading!, 13. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rubyfruit Jungle (Taschenbuch)
This book was very inspiring. I had to hide it from my parents of course, which made it all the more interesting. Unfortunately, I agree that the characters are underdeveloped and the writing style is simple, but as I have never been to Southern United States perhaps that is how they talk.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rubyfruit Jungle (Taschenbuch)
This is my second reading of Rubyfruit Jungle. I read this one back in the mid-80's, right around the time I heard Rita Mae Brown speak at Gay Games II in Kezar Stadium, San Francisco. Back then the book was considered a landmark. But reading it now it is not hard to see how far the gay movement has come. I have often thought that in the 50's, 60's and 70's nearly any book written by anyone on the subject of "coming out" saw publication, and this book confirms my thinking. If Rubyfruit were published today, it would probably be dismissed as so much drivel. It feels like entire sections of the book were written in a flurry of activity, or perhaps were dictated, then transcribed later. No colors, no descriptive phrases, no style. Just a constant of "he said", "she said", "I did this", "she did that". The book is not without merit, however. The character of Molly Bolt is able to transcend the sloppy writing. She rings true, and her sense of self-worth, along with her fierce determination, are encouraging and refreshing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful!, 5. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rubyfruit Jungle (Taschenbuch)
Great book--but then again, I know what it's like to be a misfit, so I could sorta identify with Molly--which makes my opinion somewhat biased.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I laughed and cryed aloud..making my mom wonder about me!, 8. Juni 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rubyfruit Jungle (Taschenbuch)
I loved this book! I actually was talking to it on one or two occasions! There is so much spit and life in Molly, and she had much to teach me. The only thing that set back my rating for it was the "tomorrow is another day" ending. I would rather have seen her physically triumph over everyone, but emotional triumph is the next best thing, maybe even a better thing. Overall a beautifully crafted tale, and an adventure and a half for readers

5.0 von 5 Sternen I loved this book, 21. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rubyfruit Jungle (Taschenbuch)
I found the girl Molly very bold and straighforward. I loved the way the book was so honest about how things were. They didn't censor things because that is how life really is. People say what is on their mind and this book just showed us that. I would recommend this book to everyone. It made me laugh, cry and made me feel stronger after reading it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen It was alright., 15. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rubyfruit Jungle (Taschenbuch)
I read this novel for a women's studies course and even though I admired Molly's strength, she is the only character that you grow to have any feelings for! The language is also quite simple; you would think that the book was written for a child! However, this being my first lesbian novel book as I was coming out to myself, I recommend it to others.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Once you start it, you can't put it down!, 3. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rubyfruit Jungle (Taschenbuch)
This book was fantastic.I had to read this book for a womyn's studies class two years ago, and since then I have made it a point to recommend it to any of my friends looking for a good read, gay or not. It is a triumphant story that leaves you with a lot of hope and inspiration to get out there, be yourself, and do something!
