fight club and anything by chuck palahniuk. the handmaid's tale. a day in the life of ivan d..., syrup, animal farm, lord of the flies, night, Une Si Longue Lettre, black beauty (fav from when i was little!), no exit, portrait of dorien gray, le petite prince, and i love calvin and hobbes. :]

i read gatsby and it wasn't really my cup of tea. fitzgerland is able to perfectly capture the hedonistic mood of the 1920s and successfully wag his finger at the NYC scene at the time. good book, i just wouln't read it in my spare time.

the scarlet letter KILLS me with hawthorne's details. i can't handle it. its not a bad book, it just makes me grit my teeth while i read a symbol being explained to me.

Yeah, I like to mull over a symbol without having it spelled out to me. It's so fun-sucking. The Scarlet Letter was a great read, but Hawthorne's style grates on my nerves. Especially at 1 AM.

I'll keep going back to this, but A Prayer for Owen Meany has some great hidden-not-directly-explained-in-the-book symbols. Our English class does seminars for every novel, and I could have seminar-ed on that book for days.

you would die from ecstasy in my english class. i may have said this before, but we spent the first 2 quarters of the year presenting on and discussing Crime and punishment. every student had to do a 45 minute commentary on a passage, and we usually discussed the presentation for 45 more minutes

ive been reading this forum and i just have to reply!!! = )

As I Lay Dying was great until you deconstruct past the point of no
return. And there were moments that my hate for Anse
made me wanna throw the book out the window

scarlet letter was too silly for me, like Romanticism at an extreme
My Antonia is a nice read if you like those nostalgic themes
Death of a Salesman...very depressing but good good!

extra awesome book? THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO!!!! read it if you havent already (and make sure you get unabriged)

i can't remember if anyone's mentioned the crucible yet besides me
but i just read it for class
it is so good. i think a book is good when you start getting angry at it because the sheer injustice of the situation incenses you.

has anyone read any william sleator? he writes science fictiony type books, my favorites by him are interstellar pig, house of stairs, and the duplicate, which is about cloning and the idea of who's the original and who's the clone?
and also singularity, about a pair of twins.

Ted Dekker is my absolute favorite author.
The best book I've read from him is Adam,
and I'm hoping to get my hands on his new one, Bonemans Daughter soon.
He mainly writes suspense/mystery type things.

What's your favorite of wilde's literary works? Earnest is possibly my favorite play ever. I've never heard of marquez though.

Yes yes yes yes. Si si si si si. I read a lot of his short stories in Spanish this year (Un dia de estos, La siesta de martes, El ahogado mas hermoso del mundo, Un senor viejo con alas enormes) I would like to read One hundred years of solitude, but I may chicken out and read it in English first. Just so I know what's going on. Then I can really appreciate its beauty in Spanish.

I wrote a research paper on "Un Senor Viejo con Alas Enormes"! Interesting story. Garcia Marquez is such a good writer!

this year in english we studied magical realism and read gabriel garcia marquez, laura esquivel, and borges. personally, i don't really believe in magical realism... but whatevski. one of the things that makes me laugh is seeing errors in translated works. :p perks of knowing other languages!
