Run, do not walk, away from this book. I would rather get a root canal than even think about this book again. In the words of the great Dorothy Parker, this is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.
The story itself was compelling, but the narrative was just so drawn out that a week's time would seem like an eternity. Other than my slight annoyance with that bit of the book, it turned out to be a 'good read.' The last chapter definitely made the book.

This has to be one of the longest books ever. He belabors the points a bit much for me, but it's still not a bad read. I thought Sister Carrie was better.
Wow, this is super long. And I'm a writer, so you know I ain't joking. Dare I say "A Place in the Sun", the movie, was better than this book . . . .

Theodore Herman Albert Dreiser (August 27, 1871 – December 28, 1945) was an American novelist and journalist. He pioneered the naturalist school and is known for portraying characters whose value lies not in their moral code, but in their persistence against all obstacles, and literary situations that more closely resemble studies of nature than tales of choice and agency.
