Probably one of the most evocative books about the 60's and the social upheaval of that time. Re-read it now and see the roots of today's movements.
I found the characters in the book to be unbelievable and it annoyed me that they were presented without a shred of compassion or heart from Oates. The only part of the book I found authentic was the letter that Maureen writes to Oates telling her how completely unsympathetic she is. Sadly, I agree.
