excellent classic by Lewis...

Sinclair is very depressing in this book and it is over 500 pages long. Can't say I will read another one of his books.

While maybe meant to be a work of sarcasm, it morphed to something else over the years since it was written. Now, after reading it again, I believe it's somewhat humorous. Lewis' political leanings are not-so-subtly thrust at the reader to the point of being funny. It's a good read, though, and worth the time to relive what life was like in small town America early in the 20th century.

Thanks to PaperBack Swap, not only have I read and now do I hold this Classic book by Sinclair Lewis titled, Main Street, in my personal library as a "keeper"; my grown adult children will experience this precious paperback copy as I age.
