really liked it
Read from May 06 to 20, 2012

One night of excitement!By means of this book Herman Melille wants to emphasise the subversive American society in the decade preceding the outbreak of the Civil War.The action takes place on the Feast of All fools, on the first day of April.Just from this fact we can notice that this novel is a satire and even a very good one,showing how everybody tries desperately to gain confidance one another
Definitely liked it:D
