Middlesex – Jeffrey Eugenides

MiddlesexREAD FOR BOOKCLUB

Chosen by Nadine

Middlesex is a Pulitzer Prize winning novel which chronicles the impact of an intersex gene on three generations of a Greek family.

♥ “Middlesex takes you on a sweeping journey and was quite different to what you might expect from a book about a hermaphrodite. I liked  it, but upon reflection think something didn’t quite gel for me.” – Nadine

♥ “Carefully handled story of a hermaphrodite who struggles with identity issues. Tracing the gene through generations of family provided many interesting stories and gave the story more of an epic feel. An intriguing book that covers a unique topic, with charming characters to lead you through the story.” – Rachel

♥ “Thoughts” – Suzy
