About the Book

I read this book years ago, I guess when it first came out. Since then, I've re-read it probably four times. It was amazing to me how much I came to love and respect each and every character in the book, and how sad I was when the book ended even though it was 1015 pages long.

In this book, you learn to respect all kinds of ways of life, and all kinds of people and their personalities. To me, that was the most influential part of the book - how a character that I wouldn't like is make likeable because of the addition of depth and years and loyalty.

I highly recommend this book, and though I haven't read it in years, I can still recall most of the characters and many of the things that happened, despite reading countless books in the meantime, enjoying their plots, and promptly forgetting them a week or two after I've finished. This book is one of the unforgettable ones.
