A Change In Attitudes 5 de mayo de 2004
Un comentario de un niño - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
This is the first book that I have ever read about a lesbian girl, Evie, and how her family has to deal with the comments and accusations, and haste rejections from their friends and neighbors. The story is told through Parr, Evie's brother, eyes and with every word, it almost seems that Evie is your sister, and Doug is your brother, and that you live on a farm. The fact that this story is told through Parr's perspective gives insight on what life was like for Evie. This book made me see the cruelness of people who you thought that you could rely on when it comes to homosexuality. With many books that focus around the male gay, this book showed just the opposite. Evie was portrayed as almost a rebel and a person that you would respect. This book has opened up doors for me into a whole new world of reading and I hope that others will read Deliver Us From Evie as an insight into something new. I hope to read more books that have characters just like Evie and Parr, put I know that Deliver Us From Evie will always be the best one.

A Good Starting Place.. 9 de febrero de 2001

After reading some of the reviews, I feel I have to defend one of my favorite books, so here it goes:
"Deliver Us From Evie" is one of the first lesbian novels that I've read and enjoyed. I liked Evie as a character and found her intriguing. Though I wish that the book was through her point of view instead of her brother's, I feel that looking at homosexuality through the eyes of an onlooker is a good start for people curious or interested in learning about homosexuality, but not ready to read about it first hand. From this book, I moved on to more in depth books such as, 'Annie on My Mind' and 'Good Moon Rising',but I still look back at 'Deliver Us From Evie' as one of my favorites.
P.S. For those who protest Evie being too masculine, well as Evie herself said, some of them DO look it.

Deliver us from...who?
This book, much to my surprise, isn't about Evie. It's about her younger brother Parr and his irrepressible urge to get away from his family life on the farm.
It doesn't focus on Evie, her coming out of the closet, her family's reaction (as a matter of fact, that only covered about two sentences!). It focuses on Parr. On his finding a girlfriend, on his wanting to drive, on his desire to NOT follow the family footsteps. It's all about Parr.
There are a FEW glimpses at this curious creature called Evie. Her outgoing nature, her gruff sense of humor, the fact that she always insists on wearing men's clothing. She's made out to be the stereotypical dyke - she wears jeans and leather, she refuses to wear her hair long, she turns her nose up to make-up, she loves hard work and fixing things, she's her dad's best buddy. Evie is made out to be so masculine, there are times you forget she's a girl, a lesbian, and think she's just one of the guys. As a lesbian myself, always trying to fight that stifling stereotype, I have to say that I was very offended.
If you're looking for good lesbian fiction, skip this book. If you're looking for a quick read, mostly about farming, go for it.

Decent book, but nowhere near the best 19 de enero de 2001

I picked this up from my school library on a whim. Curious to see if I could find a book that surpasses the hideous Truth about Jane movie. While this book did indeed surpass the movie..it wasn't that much better. The focus of the book indeed is Parr and not Evie. Which I worked well for the most part, considering that "Jane" had too much concentration on the lesbianism and was somewhat more exploitative than protraying them sensitively. There also is a big hint of reverse-discrimination in this story. Most of the truly bad things happen to the straight people in Duffington. Also, for a story that says it's about breaking stereotypes. This doesn't do much for it. The farmers act like typical farmers. The lesbian is the tough butch. The lesbian's girlfriend is sweet and feminate. While they at least do acknowledge that they're acting like the stereotypes, they do *nothing* to break it. It's short, good way to kill an afternoon. Just don't expect too much lesbianism in it.

Definetly 4 Star rating! 17 de septiembre de 2001

I found Deliver Us from Evie a quick read that gave me a better portrayal of being a lesbian/gay in a typical small town. With many books, I find my mind wandering off to thinking about something else while reading words on a page, and that�s all it ends up being is words on a page. This book mostly grabbed my attention with only a few times where I found myself getting anxious for the end. I did, however, finish to the last word and I was glad I did. For all those people who are in a similar situation could benefit from reading this book to gain strength they may need. Overall I think the author was trying to send the message of being true to yourself because there will always be a way to find your happiness.
