Read from March 02 to 17, 2012

The abrupt shocks and the focus on life and all its disappointments, the realization by the two Marxists in the novel than humanity will not and most likely cannot change, and the restlessness of the human spirit combined to make a very interesting and poignant book here.

Its not surprising that McCullers never replicated its quality in any of her future work. This would be very difficult for most any writer to top.
