I recently finished this book and I am going to summarize some of my thoughts in a concise list below:
- The book has great writing
- The buildup in the book is pretty amazing but there is no climatic part
- Characters are pretty well developed even if a bit hard to relate to
- About 3/4th the way in, Mrs. Montague is added but no real plot or character development is done by this
- It’s clear this book can be an influence for many movies and books that came after it
Overall, this book is a 3 out of 5 stars, in my opinion.
