I don't read much fiction, so this book was another occasional dip into it. I picked one of the most popular novels of the 20th century this time.

It's an interesting story and well written. There are many references to history and religion.

I didn't enjoy it though and I was struggling to finish it. Most references were not obvious to me and after researching them, I don't think that would have changed much. In comparison to movies, I found the novel much less dimensional.

If you are into fiction I'd recommend this book. However if the book does not resonate from the start, I don't think it will improve later for you.
