On his way back to his office, one block above, he stopped at Joe Frenna's saloon and bought a pitche

I had to read this book for a class. It starts out as a nice story, but it takes you to a place that is so unexpected! When I think about the beginning and the end of this book, no one could guess that it would end up like it did. I loved the shock of where the book leads the story. I hated what happened, but because of where it went, it will forever be in my mind. I really enjoyed reading this book.

If you're looking for a book that epitomizes the Naturalist movement at the turn of the 20th century, then this is the book for you. Rich with symbolism, this novel is a great contrast to the reform novel

I read this novel over 20 years ago and it still comes to mind. The characterizations of the young couple in new urban life was very compelling and memorable. In addition, the film adaptation by Silent Film Director Von Stronheim (acted in Sunset Boulevard - Max) will be showing at LACMA on January 22nd.

HAD to read this book and was amazed at the writing, the big difference from romanticism, and a new way of thinking. The book I read had a lot of dicussion pages after the end of the book. That was very important because I did not know they were there and was "guaging" where the ending was based on the number of pages there seemed to be left. Pow the ending came. I was thinking there would be more. I was so startled that I had to ask my Professor Baker, "What makes an ending of a book?" I think she did not hear my question so I have pondered that question for decades. Suprise ending. Not getting a cut and dry finality. Where is the "happy" ending. Etc.,etc.,. Then I realised that the "suprise" ending IS A REALISM TECHNIQUE? No Agatha Christie finality. Wham it just comes. I think that this is a great book. I would encourage people to read this genre and then try out the Naturalism genre. God bless Dr. B. Baker for the literature world to which she took me.
