A good coming of age novel for the woman of this era. Sister Carrie shows a woman being independent in a time when most women wouldn't even dream of leaving home to venture out for work. Very good read.

Dreiser is a consummate author. His writing keeps me so involved that everything else fades away.

I get it, I get and capitalism are evil, put down your hammer, my head hurts.

I did enjoy this novel for describing life during the tumultuous social changes of the industrial revolution and I appreciate the impact this novel must have enjoyed when it came out. I did not enjoy the heavy handed writing and messaging.
