I first read this for an assignment for my senior English Lit. class over Christmas break in 1987. I chose the author and book from a class list of required reading. Its plot and imagery have stayed with me since then, and I wish to read it again with my middle-age perspective. It must have been a good book.

This is a very badly written book, hard to read, I glossed over some parts, but read it all nevertheless. I wanted to know what all the hype about Dreiser was: hot air! Dreiser was a communist sympathizer. That is clearly reflected in this (boring, too long) book. It is ridiculous to think the "American Dream" is merely that, a dream. Suffice to say that in the US Blacks have attained the wealthiest position of any other country in the world—and many live on Welfare, which is a documented fact. To dismiss America and Capitalism is a means to aggrandize communism, which, nevertheless, does not make it right. NOTICE: Attempts to censor my comments will be fiercely fought under the aegis of American Library Association’s beloved principles: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Read, Intellectual Freedom. (This has been censored.)

Great American Novel - and a protagonist who is not male.

wonderful descriptions and some very flawed characters. a very good read. the imagery of carrie in her rocking chair is still with me.
