Stick to happy memories of this book - don't bother with it now. :(

I read this book and enjoyed it very much when i was 15. Reading this 30 odd years later ( and over 50 years after publication) I'm less enthusiastic. The book is preachy, what it preaches was perhaps progressive when written, but now reads as sexist, and misogynistic and reactionary.After reading from one of our hero's that women who are raped are basically asking for it, I decided finish there and consign the book to history.
