This review is from: Sophie's Choice (Paperback)
I recently finished this book after years of putting off reading it. I knew the story, and I thought the book may be too depressing or Mr. Styron's writing too daunting for me. But I was looking for a long, engrossing book so after reading the other reviews, I thought I would try it.
I am so glad I did. What a beautiful, sad and haunting book. And what a wonderful writer Mr. Styron was. Since I was looking for something engrossing, I chose the right story. I was so involved with these characters, I would think about them when I was away from the book, and yes, it was depressing, but well worth the read. I can't say enough about this book, but to read it is to experience it, to feel it. I know this will be a book I will read again one day.
