Probably the most commonly hated book among polish high-schoolers. It's boring beyond imagine, and I write it as a person who is able to read through and appreciate Proust's novels. This I couldn't force myself to finish, as couldn't countless students before and countless others are going to find impossible, unless Poland finally gets a Minister of Education sensible enough to cease these tortures.
Only for admirers of "one percent of action and ninety-nine percent of pointless nature descriptions" writing style. So basically, hardly for anybody. ( )
