it was ok
Read in January, 1977

I read this in ninth grade for school. I don't remember being impressed by it.

I know that I didn't actually understand parts of it (and I was a very good reader) as I remember going back and rereading parts because I couldn't figure out how the story had gotten to where it was!

I suppose that for the time it was written it would have been rather provocative.

I thought it was kinda smutty for a 14 year old in a Catholic school to be reading.

Funny, I haven't heard of the book since then. It was a long time ago.
