finished reading...

I read this as a college freshman more than twenty years ago. I was anxious to see how I responded to the novel after all this time. The story is of salvation and redemption in the two main characters, medieval men: one quietly content with his religion and monastic life, the other in fervent search of more worldly salvation. It is the ultimate story of head versus heart. I think I felt more sympathy for the characters in this go around.

It was a great choice for my book group. We'll have a lot to talk about.
