I thought this was amazing and full of symbolism... yes, disturbing once you pick up on all the symbolism.
I was directed to this story first by my grandfather when I was 12 or so, and loved it, then read it for a literature class in High School and enjoyed it even more with the second read (knowing what happens allowed me to read it more carefully, with an eye for the symbolism). I read it again in college, and, again, found new meanings and sympathies for the characters. It seems to be one of those works that only betters with each reading.
Has anyone else found this to be the case, or found new meanings with re-reading?
