    One thought on “The Tragedy of Woman”

    1. I won a copy of The Tragedy of Woman in a giveaway. I am always ecstatic to get one of these books, but this one left my feminist self pretty upset. This book is descriptive and well written but it is a little repetitive. The Tragedy of Woman starts off telling us about Oscine and her horrible, evil and abusive parents. We find out early in the story that Oscine’s parents don’t love her and they often hope that Oscine would just die. . .lovely. After all that Oscine went through as a child, [...]

    2. I won this book as a firstreads giveaway. It was a quick read, but it was definitely not something I would call pleasure reading. The book is sadabout a girl who is abused first by her parents and then by her spouse. The second half of the book is about a man named Eli who seeks revenge for what happened to the girl. This book is kind of a drag because of the topic. It also makes it sound like men have no choice but to be unfaithful, and women just have to deal with it, which is not a moral that [...]

    3. I won this in a giveaway and due to a hectic study schedule, it took me longer than expected to finish it. That said, the title of this book sums it up perfectly. This story is tragic. I often found myself angry at the characters (and the fact that Oscine's disease is never revealed) and the indignity of it all. And to think that these events actually happen to some people! That aside, I think the story was developed well but it is just not something I could really find myself enjoying.

    4. The main character is married with children. She falls in love with another man who treats her so much better than her husband. A classic triangle, well written.

    5. Enjoyable but so sad and depressing at the same time. A woman denied love and caring from her parents and then her husband with the cycle of abuse continuing with her children. Well written

    6. Even though I actually read this book it took all I could to finish it. The first book is a lot of repetition. The only reason I gave it 3 stars was because of Book two when Eli finally becomes an active character. The main character Oscine was a very tortured child which allowed her to become an even more tortured adult. She knew little of anything other than torture and pain. This book repeats itself so many times it is torched into memory! I know for a fact that there are bad people in this w [...]

    7. 3.5 won from ' Firstreads giveaway awhile back. I put this book off for the longest time before I finally decided to see what I had got. This book absolutely blew my minds at some points; I was literally slowly down my pace to make sure I got every single word. It has been too long since a book gave me so many emotions at once. I adored, cried, sympathized and cared for Oscine. She went through a lot during her life and deserved the very best. Sadly, that is not what she got often until Abraham [...]

    8. What a delightfully long and enjoyable book. It's the first book I've read by Mr. Ray Dacolias, and after reading The Tragedy of Woman, I plan on getting his other books. Oscine is a valiant and strong woman who has survived many tragedies that no woman should ever have to endure or go through.  It was like reading a nightmare at some points, and what made it worth reading, was how she handled and overcame the nightmares in her life.As a survivor of my own nightmares, it was an interesting read [...]

    9. I was gifted The Tragedy of Woman by Ray Dacolias in exchange for an honest review.Oscine was born sick, into a family that didn't want her. They plotted ways to get rid of her and the bills that came with her sickness. Outsiders thought they were the perfect family, especially when two boys were born into the family. In reality Oscine was left to survive on her own, left in her room or outside in her garden to fend for herself and stay out of her parents' way. Others began to see her as having [...]

    10. This was the first book I won on First Reads giveaways.At the beginning I felt a little uncomfortable because the Oscine character suffered too much, since she was born, and she practically never knew what love really was until it was too late. The amount of pain, humiliation and suffering she went through for me it was awful.But even though this was a tragedy for her, justice was made, maybe not in the best way, but it served its purpose. I never expected that the character of Eli would be tha [...]

    11. This proved to be deep reading. More the story of Eli than the story of Oscine, we see a man of great prowess far removed from the dynasty he built. It was Oscine's one dream in life to grow to adulthood and find a husband as a means to escape her horrible family. These events may have transpired, but her fantasy was soon nightmare. Oscine found solace from her nightmare within her workplace with a doctor named Abraham. We come to learn this Abraham is a close friend to Eli, his polar opposite. [...]

    12. The Tragedy of Woman was a very hard book for me to read. Instead of making me feel good and that it was a book I could recommend. I had trouble reading it due to the horrible way it showed men and women treating each other. I know these conditions are out here, but I really don't like to dwell on them. I did appreciate the ending where Eli actually became a caring person and found a life he could be proud to live. Most of the book was just gross. Never did tell what illness Oscine was afflicted [...]

    13. I won this book for free on the giveaways! This book left me absolutely speechless. This story has child abuse, neglect, love, tragedy, murder, etc all in one story. I never knew what way the plot was going. More then once I sat looking at the page thinking wow, I did not see that coming. A must read for anyone who has ever questioned their self worth!

    14. Haha. So this book get on my cousin's nerve. She also babbling me about the poor girl who totally abuse by her husband and etc. I find it interesting because some or more of the scenes are purely happen. I hope it will not happen to me. Thumbs Up for the Author ;)

    15. I just couldn't read any more of this book. I stopped at page 59. The story was strongly pushing my wrong buttons. I received this book free from a Goodread Giveway.

    16. A love triangle of a woman who has a husband and kids, but falls in love with another man. What will she do? Have to read to find out!

    17. I received this book for free from the author/publisher in response for an honest review of the book. I have not had the opportunity to read this book at this time. I will add my review of this book once I have read the book. Thank k you for allowing me the optometrist review your work. I look forward to reading this book.
