Let's take a cue from ShannonSparkles's questions ON STANDING IN THE RAINBOW: which characters did you like best and why? Also, which scenes did you most enjoy? Lastly, what could you relate to in this book? Did you identify with any situations or characters? Feel free to post even if you haven't finished reading it yet (i.e Pink!) It took me a little while to get into this novel, but it grew on me. When I think back on it, nothing really momentous ever happened--well, except maybe to Betty Raye, Hamm Sparks, or maybe TO Cecil. I liked how short the chapters were--each one seemed like a short story, and I loved how Fanny Bryce took us from the 1940s through the 90s, and created a memorable family and community that seemed very real. One of my favorite characters was Macky. I loved how he put up with Norma's behavior, (i.e. like her insistence on providing the fire department with instructions for what to do in case of fire), not to mention Aunt Elner's even more eccentric behavior. How about YOU?
