it was ok
bookshelves: ny, re-read
Recommended for: people who have not yet read it
Read in January, 2008 , read count: 2

I am re-reading this now. I read it back in the sixties when it meant something and I was still young and could relate. It is taking me much longer to read it now. Not something I sat down and read in a day or so, like the first time.

Ooooooooooooooh! This is bad. It took me so long to finish it I didn't even realize that I had finished it.

Obviously I did not enjoy it as much as when I was 13.

A lesson that possibly we shouldn't go back and read those books that we adored so long ago.
