Private: Fun with Amazon reviews of classics

A 15-year-old critic from Indiana, “heifergirl,” responds to some classics. Here’s her review of Sinclair Lewis’ Babbitt:

Kill me now so i don’t have to finish this book, March 2, 2004

Reviewer: heifergirl (see more about me) from Indiana

I am 15yo. This is a stupid book. I only got to the second chapter. All he talks about is his shoes and his clothes and what his wife’s going to wear. I don’t care what his wife’s going to wear or his shoes! I’m glad my school only makes us read the first couple chapters of a ‘classic’ and then allows us decide if we want to read the rest. If not, the suicide rate would be higher for literature class.
