Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my cup of tea I had to read this for school and I didn't enjoy it.

The themes and plot didn't feel original or appeal to me. Maybe the topic was intriguing and made it a classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Novel This is really a fantastic novel. The relationships between the mother and the sons are portrayed very well. The scene where the son buys an umbrella for his mother, and the description of how she carries it proudly around with her is especially well done.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok This was ok but I'm not sure why it's considered such a great novel. Maybe in it's period it was important or groundbreaking.
