  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Beautifully written book that remains a pleasure to read even more than a century after its publication. I can’t add any commentary that others haven’t already done, so I’ll instead comment that this is the sort of book that, I think, will always be relevant.
