Re: Book recomendations!


I could never enjoy Hugo's works. They are overly moody and depressing.

I can see where you're coming from, John. And I will confess that Les Miserables is the only thing I've read by him and enjoyed.

Another of my favorite authors is John Grisham. I have to read a book by him that I haven't enjoyed immensely.

I've only read parts of it. For whatever reason I just couldn't really get into it. I'll have to try again one of these days.

Re: Book recomendations!


When I was in HIgh School, my English teacher would pick the most obscure book over 300 pages. The classes were 50 [sign in to see URL] she'd give a test the last 10 minutes of the class (so we had to read the book in 40 minutes)

From Junior to Senior we were given a book list of 100 books and had to have them all read over summer.

Needless to say, I have read a great deal of books. Anything you could remotely consider "a classic"

Ah! See... I would have loved to have an English class like that. I've always been a bit of a bookworm, but my English classes were limited to debates, creative writing, and studying Shakespeare. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I would have liked more exposure to great literature.
