Why does everyone like this book but me? Is it because I am not an English teacher?

I am an English teacher and I don’t like this either – I suppose the reason it’s used as a set text is because there are so many erudite allusions – every word or phrase can be analysed and delved into. But that is part of the problem – too clever by half (in my opinion). I also think it such a shame that a feminist writer can only claim power and authority for her heroine by delineating a character who exploits such unappealing masculine traits. Didn’t want to see the theatre show.
That is a much more erudite comment than I could make, it must be because you are an English teacher!
