it was amazing

I was expecting this to be more challenging. It was actually a bit of a page turner. I really enjoying Werther's happy and inspired period in the beginning, then slowly it turned dark and darker. Goethe manages to convey an insane amount of emotion in this story without ever getting over-descriptive or "mushy".
