Book Review (#20 of 2008)

The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyon. Considered the first English novel, this book is required reading for students in Principles of Microeconomics here. I'm teaching the class so I thought I should read it since I never had before.

The first part was written in 1675, the second part was published in 1684. This book proves that even in the 1600s the sequel isn't as good as the original. The second part was hardly worth reading, IMO.

The vivid illustrations of the Christian life were nice, as was the King James English.

2.75 stars out of 5.
