I enjoyed this until Tom Sawyer came into it. For some reason, it seemed things slowed down after that. Still a great read, though. I plan to read Tom Sawyer soon.
I read this as great poetry/lit, rather than as heresy. Brilliant writing, great insights into human nature. Very complex and hard to understand at times.
This is the long, drawn-out tale of one man's journey back to his homeland.
