it was ok
Read in December, 2008

A classic book. The author rambles on at times and later into the book he tells you that you can just skip those parts if you don't want to read them. The plot was pretty good. Tom makes many mistakes but seems to be a good person at heart. There are a lot of sexual encounters but the author brushes over them and leaves you wondering if something actually happened. It was probably pretty scandalous in it's day but today it seemed fine. I wouldn't let my teenager read it though.
