it was ok

I was forced to read this in high school, and hated it with intense passion. Differently from other tortures I was subjected to during those dark times (latin language, Italian history, the renaissance, etc), I have no interest whatsoever in giving this cheesy romance another chance. I still don't know why they inflict this long-ass book upon generations of Italians, actually. We have better stuff than this.
