Hey Matt -- glad you feel that way! One of my all time favorite books. It's also the most complex read that I can say that I couldn't put down. Let me know what you think after you read it. Merry Chrismahanakwanzika!
I noticed your tag, Uncle Adlai, when looking through the Childhood of Famous Americans series, and thought how cool is that!
I joined Hoosier Bibliophiles. So what's going to be the first topic?
I work at the BN in Plainfield. We share some of the same books.
Nice collection. Enjoy your blog as well. You read way too much fiction to be an orthodox non-institutional Church of Christer! :)
