Ok... I guess I just did not appreciate this Classic. It was very hard for me to follow. I could never get into the story. Perhaps, I will try again in the future.

Wasn't sure I would like this book when I first started reading it but Wilder has a way of making the characters so meaningful and realistic you feel like you live next to them. No wonder he won a Pulitzer prize in literature for this one. Every reader should read The Bridge of San Luis Rey.

It took me a long time to read a short book. It was very slow moving and did not really keep my inteest. I would not recommend reading it unless you have to.
