I just finished "The House of Mirth" and man, am I ever depressed now. I started off really not liking Lily Bart one bit, and then I was annoyed with her for being so naive about Trenor, etc, but at the end, oh, I felt for her, I really did.
I don't know that I liked this work, and it certainly took me long enough to read it, but I will say that Lily won me over in the end.
Now, off to "Crime and Punishment". Or, maybe Monday.
