really liked it
bookshelves: classics

Everyone should read. It used to be required reading...school is slipping. This is an important book. In a time when more and more everyone seems to be in lock-step so far as thinking for themselves is concerned, this is a breath of air...a difficult and somewhat dark one, but knowing about the dark is sometimes the only way to keep the light.

Mike (the Paladin) blushes while looking humble and kicking foot Thank you.

Tessa in Mid-Michigan I would say this one is depressing to me, more than Black Beauty ever was. But, yeah, people should read it.

Mike (the Paladin) It is (view spoiler). There is a deep lesson to be learned here that we need. It extends deeper than the loss of love. That said, I get why some will hate the book. It is painful.

Robbi Leah  Freeman So true.
