From the Inside Flap
Three stories are told: a young Southerner wants to become a writer; a turbulent love-hate affair between a brilliant Jew and a beautiful Polish woman; and of an awful wound in that woman's past--one that impels both Sophie and Nathan toward destruction.

More than that though, the story reveals a possible experience of one of the most tragic events in the Western World's recent history in a way that is both touching and profound.
But yeah, it takes patience, and could have used a decent slashing. For my full thoughts in a book chat, check out the video.
Styron had an impressive command of the English language which he mixed with occasional locker room slang to produce a very readable and absorbing novel, with humor sprinkled through the otherwise serious tome. It is a long book but memorable.
This gutwrenching story of the title character is emotionally charged. Further, comparisons between the Holocaust and American slavery is compelling in demonstrating humanity's propensity for evil.
Well worth your time.
