Read full description of the books That Was Then, This is Now:I read this so long ago I don't remember everything that happened throughout very clearly. All I know is that it left me feeling strange and not a good kind of strange. More of an empty, emotionally drained kind of strange. Now, I realize that many books that invoke such emotions are usually very good books. I admit to shedding many a tear over this book. But the ending was so raw. The resolution was hardly a resolution in my eyes; it was probably the most realistic ending. But I was not satisfied.
I don't remember if I hated this book merely because it was not a happy ending or because Hinton destroyed my favorite character. She obliterated his life and ergo, ruined my childhood. Perhaps I need to give it another read now that I'm older, to better understand and appreciate what she was trying to say by writing the book. I might have been too young to appreciate it, but even so, even now when I think of this book, my gut wrenches a little.
