Heee! A friend of mine has been trying to get me to read that, and I've been resisting it because I fear it will be just

I thought "Summer" by Edith Wharton was a great book that nobody ever seems to talk about.
"Atonement" was a book that lots of people seemed to love -- I got irritated and put it down about a third of the way through.
