Other’s post: At the beginning of reading the book, Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson, I was having a hard time understanding the story. In chapter 1, I got confused because of how the religious story and the “real-life” story keep hopping back and forth. I was wondering if the story that was told had a special meaning behind them or not. When I started reading the beginning of chapter 2, I also did some more research about her for the letter assignment. For some reason, after learning more about the author I was able to connect her with the story which made it easier for me to understand. I start to see why the story was written that way. Jeanette’s relationship with her mother is something that caught my attention throughout the story because her mom seems so controlling. I wonder how Jeanette and her dad feel about getting controlled so religiously. From what I read in chapter one Jeanette and her father don’t seem as religious as her mom. Her mom seems so close-minded which makes it so difficult for Jeanette to learn. Like how Jeanette was seven, and just attending school. It’s so interesting to see how Jeanette’s mom plans and expects Jeanette to live a specific way for her beliefs. Their everyday life seems like a routine they have to follow. I wonder if that would affect how Jeanette acts around people when she gets older. I am excited to see where the book would lead because I learned that this book is the story of Jeanette Winterson’s life.
