's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: 100-books, own

It wasn't at all what I was expecting. The title made me think it was some kind of rural story *g* I found it enjoyable and the narrator very personable, but I'm not quite sure how it became a modern classic. That's not a criticism, really – more a reaffirmation that I just don't get the rules of capital-L-Literature from the 20th/21st century.
