Open this book to find more wonderful books 4 septembre 2000
Par Patricia A. Powell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
After reading some of the negative reviews posted on this book, I found myself compelled to respond. I am not sure how to define a great book. And clearly, anyone having the audacity to draw up an unconventional list of great books is asking for criticism.
o Is Jane Austin as good as writer as Stendhal? o Are the Bronte sisters as important as Dickens? o Is Edith Wharton as interesting as Thomas Mann?
Some people see these as an important choices. As a reader, I find myself drawn to them all, and drawn to lists that expand on what I've already read. If you want a standard list of good reading there are plenty around. Try the "New Lifetime Reading Plan" compiled by Clifton Fadiman and John S. Major. For fun you could read "Great Books" by David Denby. (He's a baby boomer writing about revisiting the classics by re-taking 2 courses in humanities and literature at Columbia University.)
I, however, prefer not to choose. The feminine voices in 500 GBBW are additions to, and not replacements for those other great books. Reading has always been a way to reach across time, and culture, to make us feel as, and for someone else, and to hear about something we have not or cannot experience. Excellent translations have given access to the words of Allende as well Homer.
Some have made this an issue of political correctness. If listening to a different voice that happens to be feminine is political correctness, then three cheers for PC. If you want to stay out of political correctness, but want to find and revisit some truly wonderful books, try "500 Great Books by Women".

FOR ALL AVID READERS 16 mars 2004
Par Jackie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a must buy for all serious readers of women's works. Since PRINCESS was required reading in my high school class, its been my favorite book, and I was pleased to see that the contributors recognized the "can't put it down" greatness of this modern day story about a Saudi Arabian princess. Then I saw LITTLE WOMEN, a favorite book from my childhood... This book not only introduced me to authors I was unaware of, but verified my own favorites, LOUISA MAY ALCOTT and JEAN SASSON and MARY SHELLY. I'm checking them off one by one. I hope these writers provide us with a sequel.

A Beginning... but some Flaws 29 mai 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is a start to finding some excellent books written by women. And the synopses of the 500 books were well-written and quite enticing. However, some of the selections seemed arbitrary. Though the authors make no claims of being all-inclusive (which they couldn't be, anyway), it seemed too much like the books were chosen on the authors' personal opinions alone. (See Booklist's review above.)

A guide. 27 juin 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I disagree with the opinion that, in order to appreciate this book, you need to be female as has been asserted. In fact, if fewer people felt this way, books authored by women would probably circulate with greater force and efficiency. Now, although I found some titles listed in this book to be based more in personal preference, I do agree that many of them are, as stated, great. Not, in all cases, award-winning or critically acclaimed. But that wasn't the point of the book. I found it helpful to search for a title by using the topic index. In general, the book is helpful and can be used as a guide or a springboard. It shouldn't become a bible of women's literature.

A good start to a reading list 3 avril 2000
Par Lissa K. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book does a great job bringing your attention to lesser-known works. However, I have a few problems. First, the organization (by themes, rather than title or author) makes it hard to find titles without resorting to the index. Also, it is limiting to list only one book per author, and the attempt to include diverse authors leads to the omission of such greats as Lorrie Moore. It's worth owning, but shouldn't be regarded as a last word.
