Love the prose and most of what Styron writes but couldn't get more than halfway through the book. Kept putting it down and didn't want to pick it back up again. Didn't like the characters enough to want to know what happened to themm. Read full review

It's a classic so I read it. A little troubling, these complicated lives. But, it is very well written, the way the author descriptive writing is outstanding. Still, I did not love it. Read full review

This could have been a novella, Styron kinda beats everybody over the head with the story, and the repetitiveness of some of the themes. Some parts were very moving and most of it was well written, but you could tell twere his first book. Read full review
