The French Lieutenant's Woman
I recently finished reading The French Lieutenant's Woman. While not terribly enjoyable, it has its moments. I was searching for a readable book at a used bookstore in Jasper, Alberta, and they had an unbelievably unappealing collection--mostly Readers' Digest compendiums, astrology books, and the like. My guess is these were books given to them by people in RVs. I figured (correctly) that Fowles' book would at least be written well, as it's considered to be something of a classic.
