A Great Read

It's been almost two weeks since I finished reading this book and it's still in my mind. If you have lived any at all, this beautiful book will stir you. I read a friend's copy and now I have to get my own. I would get a hardcover if it were available. It is that good.

Do not download this free version

This download has strange characters peppered throughout the text and "Digitized by Google" also appearing randomly.

    Sort of recommended

    I am a girl from the "hood. I have some college education and figure myself not too wordly on language from the 19th century. I must admit that I don't know what they are talking about a lot of the time, but when the story goes toward dialog, it is a good story. I can't believe that Phillip can be so gullable to acquiesce to Mildred's every need at times and I just wanted to slap the crap out of him...but I know what he went through. I've been that pathetic in my life at times myself. I thank GOD that I am over it though (not to mention how much money it has cost me to get here though) I can understand his infatuation. This is a good story but it takes one a long time to get through it. I must admit that I've seen the movie starring Bette Davis and Lesley (whatever his name from Gone With the Wind) and I would love to see the movie again. I wanted to see what the director did with the story applied against the book story. I do remember that the movie has nothing to do with the characters that Phillip interacted with in the book though...that would have made a very boring movie I think. Ok, that's my take on it anyway.

    It could have been shorter with the same points gotten across. Still finished it...took about two months give or take to read.

    Days Gone By

    I got this book because I remembered (vaguely) the movie with Kim Novak and Laurence Harvey. I found the movie haunting and could feel the depth of Philip's suffering. I find the book hard to get through though. It is based in a time period that I find depressing too strict in thought. I will try to finish it (it is quite long). In the meantime I will pick it up to help me fall asleep.
