Review: Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

Chronicles of Tania

Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit
Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a religious fanatic mother Jeanette had. She was crazy! The father doesn’t appear at all in the book, which is weird. The mother is narrow minded and intolerant and believes she is the centre of the universe and doing Gods work. Growing up as a future missionary, Jeanette was messed up and considered fatalistic and upsetting to other children at school, and that was about the time she started to realise her mother was not normal and nor was her own behaviour…

I like the second book, ‘Why be Happy when you can be Normal’ better. It’s more emotional. This book is funny and the fairy story portions were distracting.
