I had a tough time getting through "The Red Badge of Courage." The main character, Henry Flemming, or "the youth," as he is called, is almost unlikable. He is malicious and self-centered. The writing itself is quite good; however, this is not a coming-of-age story that I would read again.

Henry Flemming, aka "The Youth", The Red Badge of Courage: "At times he regarded the wounded soldiers in an envious way. He conceived persons with torn bodies to be peculiarly happy. He wished that he, too, had a wound, a red badge of courage" (Crane 51).
