Everything about this book is amazing. If I were to write a book, I would want it to be this book. From the description of how beautiful women love to the final quote, all of it is amazing.
I’m not sure I’ll ever understand why literary folk love this book so very, very much. It is a chronicle of growing and changing and loss of innocence, and well done. But there are better. I promise you.
This was hard to read, and not just because it was very graphic, but because it’s hard to keep many of the characters straight. That being said, the description and monumental historical nature that was covered was amazing, and I see why it’s on the list.
