    A bunch of words on a page

    This was the worst and most boring book I've ever read. I read it as an independant reading book, and now I must write an essay about its conflicts, and theme. This book was very hard to get into; it did not flow at all. Thoughts came and went, like the characters; they just appeared with know explanation. It was absolutly boring, and at times confusing. Please don't waste your time with this book.

    Slow, Boring, Hard to Follow

    It took me more than a month to read this book. I had to read the first chapter twice because I did not understand it. It started off slow and continued to get more boring as the story went on. I am now finished with the book, but I wouldn't be able to tell you exactly what this book was about. Eudora Welty kept adding too many characters, and it was hard to keep track of them. And Welty spent too much time explaining everything, it was boring. Do not read this, it will be a waste of your time.

    Don't waste your time...

    I had to read this book as a summer reading assignment for my freshman year of high school. Maybe it's just the age I was in while reading it, but this book just about put me to sleep after 5 seconds. It was HORRIBLE! No plot, no climax, no excitement. HORRIBLE! I had to come on here and let you all know the truth: Don't waste your time. Trust me..
