really liked it
bookshelves: classic

This is a book that most people read in high school and I never did. I've been meaning to read it ever since. Finally I finished it.

I liked it, but had very high expectations and it didn't quite meet what I thought it would be.

message 1: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth I skimmed this book at the age of 25 or 26 (i never read it in h.s either!) and remembered thinking the same thing! what was the fuss all about? so glad i wasn't the only one.

Carol Thanks for saying so, Elizabeth. It's on lots of 'Best Of" lists (Modern Library and Radcliffe)
and so I thought it was going to be something of a life changing read. It just wasn't.
