Without a question, my favorite read of all-time. I've re-read it every Fall since my first time in 1986.
Forget about the naysayers who write it off as mere soap, Metalious' earthy descriptions of the seasons alone are worth it. Anyone from a small town will be able to relate, but this is a MUST for anyone from a New England smalltown. We summered next door to the small town upon which this novel was based, and this one hits the nail right on the head. Enjoy!
And if you do like it, I highly suggest Metalious' other works as well. Excepting the somewhat obvious sequel (which she didn't want to write), THE TIGHT WHITE COLLAR and NO APPLE IN EDEN are also winners written in a similar vein.

Jeanne I agree totally about her descriptions of small towns/seasons....Especially when she describes the clearing in the woods!
