Middlesex

(1)
"Part Tristram Shandy, part Ishmael, part Holden Caulfield, Cal is a wonderfully engaging narrator. . . A deeply affecting portrait of one family's tumultuous engagement with the American twentieth century." --"The New York Times" "Expansive and radiantly generous. . . Deliriously American." --"The New York Times Book Review" (cover review) "A towering achievement. . . . [Eugenides] has emerged as the great American writer that many of us suspected him of being." -"-Los Angeles Times Book Review "(cover review) "A big, cheeky, splendid novel. . . it goes places few narrators would dare to tread. . . lyrical and fine." --"The Boston Globe" "An epic. . . This feast of a novel is thrilling in the scope of its imagination and surprising in its tenderness." --"People" "Unprecedented, astounding. . . . The most reliably American story there is: A son of immigrants finally finds love after growing up feeling like a freak." --"San Francisco Chronicle Book Review" "Middlesex is about a hermaphrodite in the way that Thomas Wolfe's Look Homeward, Angel is about a teenage boy. . . A novel of chance, family, sex, surgery, and America, it contains multitudes." --"Men's Journal" "Wildly imaginative. . . frequently hilarious and touching." --"USA Today"

First of all, if I may say so, it is absolutely fantastic that this website offers such a huge range of novels in the English-language language!! As a devoted book worm, I had heard a great deal about this book - so I decided to read it. It is witty, written with emotion and covers an interesting topic. I also really liked the impression of a Greek-American family who have not lost their roots. Definitely worth a read.
