Oct 22, 2007

bookshelves: high-school-mandatory-reading
Read in November, 2000

Cons:
-The language used really slows down the read, but it gets a little easier as you trudge through it.
-The annoying sheep-like mentality of this puritan village. -Pearl, and her mothers inability to just smack her.

Pros:
-Adultery
-Punishment
-Revenge

Overall, the subject matter is decent enough to account for the language and fact that you don't really care.
