I have whole swaths of this by heart, and somehow don’t much mind the preachifying and compartmentalizing of sex roles. Probably because I read it so young, love the characters so much, and know how to place it in the context of its times. And oh, how I love this book. The narration here is tip-top.

I revisit this book much less often than I do the third in the trilogy, but I am going through them in order this time, and I’m glad I made that choice.
