  •  You have to be ready to take on The Dispossessed (7+ / 0-)

    and brace yourself for the long haul, but I think its worth it.

    Oh and don't do what some dumbass Wisperian reader did thinking he was an oh-so-smart guy about literary memes and make the lazy assumption in the beginning that it is an allegory of the societal differences of USA vs USSR in the mid-70's.

    You will waste a lot of time in the first 100 pages going "Wait... what?  But I thought..." until you finally get to "Maybe I should just shut up and read the book."

    My advice to any would-be readers:  Learn from me start with that approach from the beginning. ;)
