The novel is a classic, and there aren't many weaknesses to cite. If I had to list a few I might go with the fact it has an inordinate amount of imagery...... then again, imagery is so lacking in contemporary literature that I hate to even mention it. The only other weakness I can think of is the novel's slow start. I believe that many people give up on the novel before it even gets going.

As for strengths....... the characterizations are fantastic, and the author's use of forshadowing keeps the reader on his/her toes. We learn to truly care for the main characters and feel as if we know them..... the reader feels a vested interest in the outcome.
