Dear 100 Hour Board,

i just finished reading "the awakening" for my english class. i thought it was a dreadful story and disliked the book. but, i'm wondering what those of you that have read it thought of it.

A: Dear non-fan,
I never read it (I'm not really the literature type), but I loved "The Story of an Hour." It's a very short one, but it has such an interesting message, and I especially liked the style. But don't take my word for it.

A: Dear Not a Fan,

I read it back in my 11th grade AP American Lit class and I didn't particular like it. But I was also 17 years old, so I don't really trust my own opinion too much. I've changed an awful lot since then. That's not to say I would like it if I read it now (I may or may not), just that if I didn't like it, I'd probably not like it for different reasons.
