Brideshead Revisited

I am still wondering why this novel by Evelyn Waugh made it to both lists. It was just okay in my opinion. It had a nostalgic feel to it. It left me with questions. I was a little sad (more about the Marchmain house than the characters themselves). I don't know-- it was just okay.

It wasn't a fast read, but it wasn't too difficult. I honestly don't have much more to say on the subject.

I am going to watch the movie that was recently made. I'm hoping that the movie will be better than the book.

I didn't like the movie at all. It's very melancholy. The book is much better than the movie, but I didn't really enjoy reading it either. Have you had time to read The Omnivore's Dilemna yet? It's excellent!
