The Way of All Flesh

The Way of All Flesh - Samuel Butler, William Lyon Phelps This is probably very accurate for its time because even in the late 19th century people were probably this ignorant and stuff (what am I saying? Of course they were, it was the Victorian era). Unfortunately it hasn't dated quite as well as some other satires (Twain for example). There are some pretty dead on moments and some pretty funny moments but they are few and far between. Also the ending is pretty lame.
