I hate this. it's hard to read, and the language is obnoxious.
When I first started reading this book it was midsummer and it was soon after rest of my choir had gone to Italy without me. My choir had mostly stopped doing performances and was going to start up in august and my deadline for finishing my work was our annual fall retreat. I was trying to get any and all things I needed to get finished, done in mid-July.
I remember at the time thinking why my mother had suggested this book to me as it had never interested me. (I don’t like tragic stories) I remember the book by how hard it was to read. The complex language befuddled me and had to make me think more than I normally had. I hope to dear lord that no one is like me, but if they do happen to be, it really depends on your mindset when reading the book. I read the book when I wasn't really focused which only made reading it harder and more taxing on my mental stability. I would suggest this book to any who are brave enough to try and conquer this daunting task alone. I received help from my mother who happens to be an English teacher herself.
I feel like I personally would have enjoyed this book thrice-fold if it hadn't been assigned as a summer reading book for my honor’s English 2 class this fall. Reading the book at this time in my life presented a new challenge.
I would recommend to any and all people that are looking to figure out the olde English language. It is written entirely in olde English, which makes it much harder to grasp than a book which is in the modern English language. I leave thee with the knowledge of this challenging novel and the lengths that I went through to finish it before my school hath started.
