My favorite line from the story is, "...women are taught that there's no strength in our tears. But why are tears powerless, if those tears lead to insight, or a sense of peace?" Mostly because it shows the power that women are given in the story and because it speaks to the power of showing your emotion, which I usually end up doing.
While it wasn't my favorite story I've ever read, it was interesting because of the history behind it. The other thing I found really interesting about it was that at the end of the book the author includes a letter to the reader. While it's not completely unusual to address the reader, I like how honest and sincere he was. It made me like the book that much more.
