Dana Moore It was very descriptive and painted an excellent picture of each character. However, it was boring by today’s standards. This book is nearly 100 years of age - expectations were different, during this time period. This book is worth reading. It gives you an understanding of the writing trends and the mindset of people During this time-if these things concern you.
Susan Katz I am attempting to read all the books that have won the Pulitzer Prize, so I got a (free) copy of Early Autumn by Louis Bromfield. I don't believe a book has ever bored me quite so much. I am now skimming. It's just a lot of exposition and not much narrative.
