Maugham

I so happy with the activity that's picked up here after it being so quite. I'll post what I'm reading now.

I'm about a third into Maugham's Of Human Bondage. It's a bildungsroman about a boy with a club foot. Thus far, I quite like it. Maugham's characters are always some of the best. He's very clever and subtle in his descriptions. It's around 600 pages long. I've only read one other novel by him, and it was relatively a short one. The pace of the book has been rather quick and I'm interested to see where he takes it. Anyone have any thoughts on it, if they've read it?
