it was amazing
bookshelves: read-for-school, favorites, the-classics, historical-fiction, i-own-it
Read in January, 1999

A little known tale of morality, murder, and slavery. I got a little sick of it in college (mostly cause I had to write a long paper on it) but years later, it's one of my favorites from my college lit classes.

PS ... it's also one of the first novels ever written in the english language. and one of the first ever by a woman.
