I'm delighted to see this one back in print--read it when it was new, found it powerful. It's not great literature, but it's a fine story.

Really interesting book, but prepared to be utterly depressed at the end of it.

While the writing is not stellar and the characters lack dimension and depth, the historical and cultural context resonates and makes this book worth reading.
