This book caused much stir among readers for a good reason. Creative descriptions but a good plot as well. The author makes us feel for the protagonist and almost cheer for her. I would not recommend letting children read this.
I know this is a classic and I really wanted to like it. But I disliked the main characters. I found them to be shallow and boring and couldn't wait for the book to be over. :(
Maybe this book was really explicit and great in its day, but besides the porn scenes and descriptions of anatomy, I don't see what was so literarily great with this novel. I suppose if you are interested in it from the historical viewpoint, if you want to know why this was a highly sought after and critically publicized banned book in the early twentieth century then take a listen.
