At that stage of my life (AP English assignment during the summer going into senior year of HS) I really enjoyed it. I'm not sure if I'd appreciate it now. I've only been into non-fiction the past few years :/ However I like a lot of feminist authors and I read a lot of books from that genre and time period that year and loved the strong and bat sh!t crazy female protagonists as well. Overall, I'm a fan.

I heard that was good. I plan on reading it eventually.

Well, it was better than half of the stuff in AP lit. I don't remember why though.

(I do remember that F. Scott Fitzgerald sucks.)
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

It was probably the worst book I ever read that was considered "great literature". I didn't think it was possible. I read it along with a bunch of other classics before college started as part of my summer "to do" list and it was just...misery in comparison.

Didn't realize that everyone else had such good reviews. I kind of feel awkward now, since It's been a while since I read it and don't have any legitimate criticism off the top of my head.

This contradicts your theory on society's considerations being the sole determinent of value.

How you resolve the contradiction is yours.
