Look Homeward, Angel (Scribner Classics)

Look Homeward, Angel - Thomas Wolfe this was a most tedious struggle for me. after about 250 pages it got slightly easier (and was even alright from around pages 350-450) but i really didn't like his writing style at all. (turns out he's a different man than tom wolfe, who i haven't loved, but liked considerably better than thomas wolfe. and who i was expecting.) i really didn't like much at all about this book. (and how is it that the last 10 or so books i've read have all had the 'n' word in them, and prostitution? he uses the 'n' word often and with intention, because he also uses the word negro, sometimes in the same sentence. this only added to how hard it was for me to read this.)
