it was amazing

My favorite book in 8th grade, I recently came back to it to see if it sucked like everything else I liked back then. Nope! AMAZING. I love his style. Turns out that many of the "original" thoughts I've had over the years since were actually just plagiarized straight out of here. Deeply powerful. I didn't realize it until my fourth or fifth read through, but the first hundred pages are especially great because every single scene is a metaphor that reveals something deeper about the theme. It's still wildly entertaining even if you ignore that, though, which is why it's so great.
