An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge

The Virgin Blue

The Virgin Blue - Tracy Chevalier

This is one of my favorite books, but I totally understand why people wouldn't like it. I never recommend it to anyone because I'm convinced no one else would like it. I find it to be an easy, comforting read. 


I first read this book in high school, so there is a little nostalgia coloring my view of the book. I like the format. Give me a story with dual timelines and protagonists any day (Holes, The Hundred Secret Senses, etc). I like the characters. I like all the genealogical searching. I like the way everything comes together in the end.
