    2. OK, before we start, I think it should be made clear that I want to BE Gloria Cotterher blend of beauty, perspicacity, wit and emotional depth is the template for everything I strive to be Like Gloria, I was a precocious child like Gloria, I found that being a small adult thrown in with a pack of near feral kids who seemed hellbent on either assimilating or crushing all in their path necessitated adaptive behavior from a young age and, like Gloria Cotter, I have a heart and head that are often a [...]

    3. I don t even know what to say besides that I wish I was Gloria Cotter This book is pure heaven if you like to read coming of age novels It s 600 pages so it s not a fast read, but I honestly prefer it that way You get so deep inside Gloria s mind you forget who you are.I can t believe this was written by a man It was just.rfect I love Gloria s flaws, and how she had to be someone other than herself to fit in I loved that she was an English major in a sorority full of girls that weren t even clos [...]

    4. It s rare that I find a book that strikes such a deep note in me This was like a ten fingered chord on an organ It s a hefty tome it weighs pounds I d put off reading it because of its size but once I started, I could not stop It just blew me away The story, the characters, the attention to detail, the social and cultural minutiae of 1950s America against the beautiful literary referencesAnd above all, Gloria.Gloria Her mental flooding Her anxieties Her raw desires Her fears Her joy Her pain.I t [...]

    5. The author did a great job of capturing period details, but the book was much much wordier than it needed to be Also, he spent so much time emphasizing Gloria s great ability to play the game and act like a perfect society girl that it was easy to lose sight of what was supposed to make her interesting, which was her love of poetry and desire for a PhD I didn t end up liking her as much as I d expected to.

    6. Ahhhhh this book is special to me for so many reasons First off, I read parts of it on a bus trip from D sseldorf to Paris It speaks volumes for the power of a good book that I, many times, chose to read rather than look out the window at the gorgeous unfamiliar countryside Even though I was in college in the late 90s, I could totally relate to the main character Gloria s emotions as she traversed her journey as a college girl in 1950s Virginia The author not only captured what it was like to co [...]

    7. Coming of age story of Gloria Cotter during the 1950 s and 60 s before the women s movement well written, developed and believable characters One of the best books with a female protagonist written by a man that I ve ever read I wasn t constantly thinking, she wouldn t do think be that way Long, but enjoyable easy read More of a character study than anything else, so if you love a fast moving plot, Gloria isn t for you Only three stars because tho I ll always think of Gloria fondly, she isn t a [...]

    8. I loved this book, beyond anything I could have anticipated My initial hope was that I could get into it little did I know that I d be transported to the 1950s so deeply and effectively This was exactly the book I was looking to read engrossing, detailed, nuanced, dynamic, smart What a satisfying read

    9. I really liked this book initially and wanted it to be the book I was hoping it would be Premise follows a steel heiress and her plight to find herself Author does a good job really placing you in the characters shoes, he changes the point of view periodically The book was going swimmingly until around the 200pg mark and it took hard right The author introduces characters that are verbally and sexually abusive manipulative It goes away for a little while and returns with force Ifthe author had j [...]

    10. I didn t love it as much as Maillard s near perfect Clarinet Polka, but I didn t expect to Nonetheless, it s pretty incredible And is it just me, or can this guy write some fantastic non sex scenes

    11. I felt like Gloria was a live person and if I could just turn a corner somehow I could sit by the pool with her.

    12. Set in the summer of 1957, this story follows Gloria Cotter, a wealthy and beautiful young college graduate who finds herself home after college graduation and floundering at finding her next step Although beautiful, privileged, and intellectually accomplished, Gloria feels stifled and trapped in her insular world Expected to make a good marriage to a man from a similar background, Gloria feels trapped at the thought of falling into marriage and then motherhood and instead considers pursuing a P [...]

    13. I picked this book up at the Bargain Books one day because it was a brick I love long complicated books as a rule and because I was intrigued by the hardcover version of cover art, and now I only wish I d purchased multiple copies, as mine is starting to tip and sway as the spine crumbles The first time through, I thought I d made a mistake, even at half price but finished it anywayd promptly read it all again as I d been sucked into the book and its premise I ve been hooked sinced people who kn [...]

    14. This was my first opportunity to read a novel by Keith Maillard, however it won t be my last experience I thought that he did an excellent job as a male author to capture the protagonist s Gloria female spirit, insecurities, and, most importantly, her POV as a debutante on the edge of womanhood It was evident that he did his research in describing the intricacies of baton twirling, competitions, and pageants I initially purchased this book from the bargain bin at Barnes Noble as the cover art ca [...]

    15. I adored this book the first time I read it, as a college sopho, back in 2005 I loved it so much I read it again just a year and a half later during the summer before my senior year Despite claiming it as my favorite book for the past decade, I honestly had no real recollection of its details beyond that the writing is, in fact, incredibly detailed purposeful and that Gloria is a wonder to uncover Amidst a recent reading funk, I decided to pick it up again, as a proper adult, to see if my perspe [...]

    16. First of all, let me point out that this edition of the book is deceptively long It looks like a fairly standard paperback, but it is over 600 pages, which I didn t realize until I started to wonder why it was taking me so long to read it Gloriais, in essence, a coming of age period piece It is set in the late 50 s and really seems to capture the s and attitudes of wealthy mid century Americans Gloria struggles to find her identity amid the expectations of her family and society, but the struggl [...]

    17. I felt at home with this story I felt as if I were living with Gloria, or rather WERE Gloria Within a couple of pages, I could not stop to think, let alone do anything remotely resembling responsiblity I was hooked until the last page, and returned for a second and third time, anticipating what I knew was coming, but yet always, always surprised Everytime I read this book, I run into something I hadn t caught the times before And the storyline itself is so captivating and so dreamy in a sense Th [...]

    18. There were things I liked about this novel, but I think it was at least 200 pages too long It was repetitive and the parts delving into Gloria s parents characters felt like long winded unnecessary distractions Also the sexual assault scenes were disturbingly graphic had I known it was going to be like that I wouldn t have picked it up.However, I truly enjoyed Professor Bolton s character, Gloria s eccentric British English professor I definitely could have benefited from knowing a Professor Bol [...]

    19. This is a long book an is a good read set in 1957 or 1958 Small town privileged country club family oldest daughter home after graduating from college.All the constraints of wearing the right thing, being beautiful, and she is further hampered by being smart and ambitious.Very interesting snap shot of that era and of course she is about to hit the 1960 s when she goes to Columbia in the fall I really wanted to follow her through all that, but some how by the end, I knew she would be okay The bit [...]

    20. Two voracious readers recommended this book While reading it, I checked several times to make sure we were reading the same book I found it excessively verbose and tedious, and I could not relate to the characters on any level If I never hear the word crinolines again, it won t be too soon Clearly I was missing something special about this book If it hadn t come highly recommended, it is doubtful I would have pushed through I enjoyed the literary discussions, but that was about it Rounding up to [...]

    21. A social history coming of age novel about a girl growing up in the 1950s What s amazing about it is that it was a written by a man, and b never gets tired, even though it s than 500 pages Everyone from my little sister to my 80 year old neighbor has borrowed it and returned it tattered I think it s because the narrator, like many of us, goes from thinking about classical mythology to a new mascara over the course of a conversation.

    22. Vacuous nonsense I found Gloria to be ridiculous and rather ignorant despite the books she supposedly devoured and the poetry she referred to as having memorized in school I stuck with it assuming the reviews I read were somehow going to prove the over 600 page book would at some point redeem itself Alas, nope It pretty much sucked at character development, plot and style I m really wondering why some of the reviewers want to be Gloria Seriously Don t waste your time.

    23. I read this quite some time ago, but remember being completely absorbed in it and the title character.Although somewhat stereotypical in that it follows the coming of age of a beautiful wealthy girl in the 50s and 60s, the book is written intelligently and with often haunting insight The events that take place are a bit turbulent and strange at times but it s really the character s narrative built around and in reaction to these events that I was drawn to.

    24. A friend suggested this book, saying it was an amazingly underappreciated novel that she knew I would love I m glad I trusted her opinion, because while the book is a time committment indeed, it was beautifully written and has become one of my all time favorites I was sucked in to the story immediately and remember having actual feelings of panic relief during some of the stressful scenes I would recommend it to anyone.

    25. One of my top 5 books of all time, if not my very favorite I read this book at least once a year A very in depth look at one young woman s life as develops into womanhood in the 1950s 60s Even amazing that it is written by a man This is an incredible piece of fiction and I think everyone should read it I have never felt so passionate about a book before.

    26. Why didn t this book get attention I had never heard of either it or the author when it was recommended to me, but it s a book that I would think should have pretty broad appeal a completely riveting, lyrical and highly detailed coming of age epic The 50s upper class West Virginia country club set is beautifully portrayed too.

    27. Wow, it s been quite awhile since it took me so long to finish a book This one was slow reading for me It was very different from what I usually read and even though I finished it last night, I m still not sure entirely how I felt about this coming of age story in the 50 s Gloria is a unique character , to be sure, and I m glad the ending left off where it did Not your typical heroine.

    28. So I am about to be a college freshmen and this book was the exact thing that i needed in order to relax and not stress about my future If Gloria could make her own path in life then why cant I I suggest this book to any person who is having a difficult time in their life, this book will help you see that great thing are waiting for you once to tackle the hard tomes straight on
