I read this book for school and it was a hard read to say the least. From what I actually remember it was pretty bad. I have a feeling when I am older and more mature and I finally decide to re-read this book I am going to love it and understand the philosophy behind it and all the metaphors that I missed the first time. But until that fateful day occurs, I am going to stick to the claim that I ... ABSOLUTELY AND COMPLETELY HATED THIS BOOK WITH ALL OF MY HEART
