sophia_sol: drawing of Combeferre, smiling and holding up a finger like he's about to explain something (Default)
Meh. Written in the 1940's by a man, and the gender dynamics are unfortunately what you'd expect from that origin. Also the plot and characters are not what one might call nuanced. According to the internet, the people who like this book like it for its prose and imagery, not its plot and characters, but I wasn't struck by the prose and imagery myself - I mean, it's fine, but nothing special, and not worth reading the kinda-crap story for, since there's plenty of better books with just as good (and better!) prose/imagery.
