    good afternoon..
    firstly, i’m sorry i’m not going to comment this writing….
    i am tata, i am a student of a college in indonesia. my major is english literature.
    i’m reading Steve Thayer’s the Wheat Field. n i am going to discuss this novel as my final assignment.
    i browsed the internet, n then i open your Jandy’s reading room. book review. then i see your blog.
    since you are a bookcholic, i’m sure your understanding in reading is much more better than mine.
    i am a bit confused.
    would you give me your hand?
    in your opinion, which topic that i should discuss better from this novel?
    i see voyeurism, politics, investigation etc in this book. but i got confused. 🙁

    waiting for your help.
