Main Street Tough-o-Meter

By Harry Sinclair Lewis

Tough-o-Meter

(8) Snow Line

Sinclair Lewis's poetic language can be really tough to follow at times. As if that weren't bad enough, the plot of Main Street can get really, really dull. It's all part of Lewis' effort to show us how lame Carol Kennicott's life is, but the fact is that sometimes Lewis might succeed a little too well at describing a boring life. Put it all together, and you'll definitely need your full attention to get through this bad boy.
