I just finished reading the novel “Sophie’s Choice.” It was long, tiring and a bit boring at times. I read it thinking it was supposedly a great movie and won awards and what not, so its got to be great. No, No, No it was not great. The book was way too wordy, over descriptive at times. The story it good, but the reading was painful. I would never ever recommend this book to anyone. That being said, it is an old book, and the movie did win awards, so who am I to critic it so harshly. Perhaps I should now rent the movie for a comparison.
