The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers

By the way, last week I finished The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers, and sadly it did not live up to my rather high expectations.

Perhaps it’s because I’m not from the South and have never lived in the South, but I couldn’t relate to many of the characters and their situations.

I found the book dreadfully sad and I though McCullers’s writing thoroughly impressive for a 23 year old author (at the time).

Anyway, I read this for a book club and will post more after our discussion.
