I discovered this book on the ModernLibrary Guilds list of the top 100 best novels of the twentieth century. Based on the title I feared that it would be overly melodramatic. However it was anything but a soap opera. The characters are portrayed as complex human beings and not stereotypes of people. It is beautifully written and well performed. It grabbed my interest from the beginning. It became one of my favorite novels which I have heard or read.
