really liked it
bookshelves: classics

I first became interested in this book when I heard Chaim Potok -- one of my very favorite authors at the time -- speak at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He identified Brideshead as having been a watershed of literary excitement for him as a young man: he loved the characters, wanted to live in the book, etc.(very interesting that a future rabbi would so totally dig a book about uptight Catholics).

I didn't fall in love with this book in the way that Potok did, but the characters are so well-defined that they've stayed in my mind quite clearly although I read the book a few decades ago.

Sorry for this non-review.
