I picked this up for bookclub. I hadn’t realized that the book was originally published so long ago that it pops up under modern classics.
When I was reading it, I was struck by how much of the story is still very relevant today. It is a hard story to read, but I hope to get to the movie someday.
I enjoyed the book and I would definitely recommend reading it. I was not so thrilled with the ending, which is why I didn’t give it 5 stars.
