Teenagers?No
Adults?No

Comments: So this is a example of a well written, clever classic novel, unfortunately it is not one worth reading. Through out this book the characters involve themselves in the worst kind of debauchery this world has to offer and the point is they never learn from it, they never change, or get better, they never grow, except to grow worse. It is a waste of time to read and it is depressing. However the heart of it is truth. Sin brings unhappiness.
