Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is one of the best coming of age novel. In this the author utilizes Freud's psychological discoveries to explain the behavior of the young boys. In addition, this novel truly comments on society. This novel is rich is vocabulary and learning it will not just help in the class, exams, or presentation, but will increase one's knowledge and add to the personal vocabulary they posses. Through this novel, I learned how society influences behavior and I strongly believe that the author does an amazing job of explaining it. The choice of characters especially their age enhances the novel. Before reading the text, I would recommend doing basic research on the author and Freud's findings on Ego, Super Ego, and Id.
Through this course, I learned how society affects our behavior and how psychology plays such a big role in defining a person and their behaviors. In addition, I learned how age doesn't matter; everyone has their own monsters.

Advice for students:
I would advice that you read the actual novel rather than summaries online. Through the text, the student can read and remember details that not only come on the test but also can add to their understanding of life in general.
