This book caught me by surprise.  It was not at all what I was expecting and I enjoyed it despite myself.  Many users of Goodreads categorize this Thorton Wilder novel as a Classic.  I think my criteria for a classic may be higher than most and I’m not sure I would include this, but it was a great book.  It won the Pulitzer in 1928.  As I said, I enjoyed this book and I didn’t think it was going to be a page-turner, but I did burn through it.  The fact that it was only 138 pages definitely helped in that aspect.
