Oh, please God, don't make me ever have to read or teach this book again, pretty please. This is the literary equivalent of fingers scraping on a blackboard.

Cheryl S. Thank you, thank you. I had to read this in high school and hated it. Our instructor made us feel like ingrates because we didn't appreciate "great literature". Yuk!!

Granny Worst of all, 30 years later, I ended up teaching it. At least the students could feel my pain. Aghhhhh!
