    "Worth it!"

    This was a wonderful analysis. When I read this book, I knew there was so much more that was going over my head, and I have so much closure finally have it all explained.

    Includes good book club questions!

    Story
    "This was not an analysis; it was a precise"

    Very disappointing. The main bulk of this was just precise; dividing up the parts & chapters & saying in brief what happened . Some pertinent insights Into symbolism used Etc. I felt Boris's role, which was pivotal, was severely understated.
