Read in January, 2000

I did NOT like this book at all when I had to read it in high school. I couldn't stand the author's style of writing or way of pigeonholing characters into specific roles for their entire lives. Ironically, as I've grown up, I've realized how people really do stay the same in many ways from the time they were kids, and I often find myself assessing the roles that have been consistent within my own family (with flashbacks to this book). That being said, I still don't think I'd like the book if I were to reread it now. I found it pretty depressing and didn't like any of the characters (and just because the author hit one aspect of the book on the nose of catchiness and accuracy doesn't mean I have to like the story or the characters).
