I first read this when I was 15 or so. Now I'm in my 30s and reading the book now is a whole another experience. It is still SO VERY GOOD. Yet now it has that extra layer of me being a grown-up woman very acutely aware of gender imbalance and wider political movements, it is just exceptional. We'll read this book for generations to come.
