Reactions to "Butterfly Kisses"
I was curious about how the class generally felt about the book as a whole. After having met Dr. Thomas today, we know that, for example, he tried to portray Mari as "dumb", but I personally didn't get that from the text. What surprised me the most was the graphic sexual content of the story, and I felt it didn't need to be in the story as much as it was. Another aspect of the text itself is that it felt a little disconnected, as if we had to "fill in" some of the sentences ourselves. What do you guys think (either about my take on the book, or your personal view?) Overall, I felt the book was really good to read, and I enjoyed it!
