Commentary

The only good thing about it is the portrayal of Meg’s uneven talent profile: her “emotional immaturity” and lack of engagement in school. This characterization seems ahead of its time. Everything else about the book is cognitively lazy and unconvincing. The ignorant communist metaphors, in particular, made me cringe.
