The book was recommended to me by...a girl in my German class. She is a doctoral student of English Literature.
It is most suited for...females.
Reading it made me want to...write more. Go to England (grin). Be real. Dye my clothes green.
I was pleasantly surprised...by its bittersweetness. By its feeling of authenticity. By its cleverness and intelligence and insight. That it seemed so contemporary (considering it was published in 1948).
Lessons learned: In spite of good intentions, life can be messy.
My recommendation: READ IT!!!
