it was ok
Read in January, 2000

Saw a friend review this and remembered I was forced to read it as part of my government school education, it is ok, nothing spectacular. I guess it is supposed to be a metaphor for something, some say about Christ, but if we just read it for what it is it really just seems like a bummer fishing trip. This books reputation as a great work in literature is entirely undeserved.
