I don’t get it.

    You read the subtitle, right?

    Does this help? http://tinyurl.com/3xbfoy

    Shannon – yes, I understand that it was a nightmare, but I don’t get all the symbolism in the nightmare. Maybe I’m too distracted with getting ready to start our homeschooling year, and I should try it again at another time.

    Oh, also, thanks for the link, Shannon – it did spread a little light!

    I did a survey of scholarship on Thursday in college, and you’d be surprised (or maybe you wouldn’t!) how many critics disregard the subtitle.

    If you don’t get it, there’s no way I’d get it! LOL

    I was thinking what Lisa said. So I have doubts that I will be reading this one!

    Shannon – I read it online, and I can’t remember if the subtitle was actually on it! I knew it had a subtitle, though, from looking at it on Amazon before.

    Lisa and Lawanda – definitely not for the faint of heart.
