New York Times Book Review

There is probably no phrase much more hackneyed than that of 'human document,' het it is the only one which at all describes this very unusual book. . . . Although this is a novel of over 500 closely printed pages the style is terse -- so terse that at times it produces an effect as of short, sharp hammer strokes. Yet it is flexible, too, as shown by its success in depicting varying shades of mood, in expressing those more intimate emotions which are so very nearly inexpressible. -- Book of the Century; New York Times review, September 1913
