The_Penciled_One – 2008-05-21 4:09 PM Hmmm dont mean to be a downer but I will be the frist and the proably the most coragous to say that I Disliked the book. Given I had to read it for school but all in all i found it mostly dry and by all means a somehow pointless book. Now do not give me a lecture on the book I understand the theme and etc. Otherwise I am glad some ppl are enjoying such a classic although I will keep my nose wrinkled in disgust.

 

Nothing wrong with not liking it, but pointless?  I’ve never heard Grapes accused of being pointless.  I can’t imagine a novel having more of a point.
