This one's on my "must read before I die" list, but I doubt I'd get around to it for this book club read.
It is a quick read for its length. I enjoyed a lot more the first time I read it back in high school than I did for a recent reread. It's an enjoyable tale, but I don't see much meat on the bones for discussion. That's just my opinion though.
