did not like it
Read in July, 2009

I was drawn in by the love story, but I ended up really hating this book. The characters were so...I don't know, one dimensional. And their dialogue was incredibly boring. I found that I was reading just to find out what happened, not because I really cared about them. I don't get why this is such a classic. Surely there are better books about WWI out there. And definitely anti-war literature.

The ending is tragic and depressing. And I read and love Steinbeck. So that's saying something.
