so far, my sense is that this novel could have told the same story in half the number of pages without losing very much, but that half a century ago lots of readers were willing to read slow-paced, long books because they had lots of time to fill with reading -- there were fewer amusements competing for their leisure time...just a thought...and I like this book a lot, and am trying to read it as someone living in the early 50s, when it was first published, which is part of the fun
