  1. Emancipating Alice by Ada Winder is a book I have been looking forward to read for some time and stayed at the bottom of my pile as incentive to do less promising work I knew from the first page onwards I was going to like this and I was right about that.After over 30 years of marriage George dies and his widow Alice needs to come to terms with her loss and her memories A very sentimental but incredibly well done and touching first part tells us about the first few days after the death and in fl [...]


  2. How anyone could read this book and not fall in love with it would be beyond my scope of understanding I was amazed when I read the afterthoughts of the author to learn that this novel was a National Novel Writing Month book I have read many, and this book far surpassed the others.This novel is simply wonderful At times it is disturbing, always refreshing and at the very heart of this book is the raw emotion of a woman who never got the chance to experience the life she felt she deserved Fiction [...]

  4. Very clever opening a shopping list interspersed with Alice s inter dialogue reflecting the insight that her husband has just died The reader is already curious about the couple s relationship We then flash back to the beginning of their courtship in college which already indicates signs of a controlling husband to be Perfect dialogue I ve only read the ABNA excerpt, but hope to get to the rest of this book soon.


  5. We meet Alice in the grocery store, shopping while she waits for the appropriate time to go home and find her husband dead The reader knows she has killed him, but we don t know why or how, or how she will get away with it.Very well written, but we could have done without Chapter Fourteen.


  6. From the beginning, their relationship had an imbalance built into it by the very double standard that often defined relationships in those times It was the 1970s and they were in college when they began, and even though Alice was feeling the thrill of realizing her own dreams, the marriage between her and George was not to be an equal one.He expected her to give up on her career aspirations, since he could provide financial support for them None of her protests changed anything She could have f [...]


  7. For an independently published book from a debut author, Emancipating Alice isn t half bad Editing errors are minimal mostly of the missing comma variety , there are no glaring formatting flaws, and author Winder is a competent writer.The story starts off with promise Alice, a middle aged housewife, is at the grocery store when she is overwhelmed by the sense that George,her husband of many years, has died As Alice continues to shop, Winder makes it clear that Alice is somehow responsible for Ge [...]

  9. An interesting book I thought the writing was very good Very realistic For content and writing the author deserves 5 stars But for me personally, it was the gnawing in my gut, the uneasiness that I felt about the subject matter that I rated it 3 stars.I thought that the author did an excellent job on how Alice was manipulated by George At times it was difficult to read about how he threatened her and controlled her, but as a classic abuser, he was free to do what he wanted, when he wanted, and s [...]


  10. I received Emancipating Alice, by Ada Winder, as a Goodreds First Reads giveaway winner I enjoyed the book liked the detailed characters It was sad in than the traditional way I could relate to parts of it I could even understand some of the decisons the characteras made Part of me just wanted the primary characters to step up and be honest and make the changes everyone who reads the book is probably hoping they ll make It wasn t exciting, psychologically thrilling or mysterious, but regretfull [...]


  11. Wonderful debut novel that opens with Alice in a grocery store wondering if her husband at home is dead She just has a feeling We then learn about Alice s life with her husband The first part of the book is from Alice s viewpoint, the second part from her husband George s The character detail is outstanding We quickly get to know or do we the main characters in the story and learn about how they met and their married life A captivating book.
