Never read it but just the way you describe it and what I am going through lately, it already hit a chord. I have never read much by Ernest Hemingway and I am ashamed to say that actually. I have to probably add one favorite is Edgar Allen Poe
In high school I liked it, I just read it in Women's LIterature again this semester and I didn't like it as much anymore. I think its due to how I have evolved but in five years I want to read it again so I am keeping the copy I had to buy for class
I will have to also check out the one you read in high school, sounds like something that I would enjoy. The stand is one of my favorites...so is IT and many others. I have a passion for the holocaust, slavery, and historical events like that now
Both I have not read and indeed plan to add to my evergrowing list of winter break reading. I used to read in high school through probably the end of my first marriage in my late 20s a novel a week at least...now its only if its hmwork I am so busy
I loved John Grisham novels when I was in my early twenties and had gone back to community college when I was newly married to a Marine. He didn't read but heard me raving about the Firm, so on drives to L.A. he would have me read it to him outloud
My dad is currently reading Wuthering Heights for the first time, I never even saw the movie. That is one I added to my list for next summer. As for the rest I have never heard of them. You all have me intrigued to the ones that are new to me
Are you kidding??? Excellent choice. Maybe not comprehension on a basic level a heavy read but there is a lot of analysis that can go into Twain. Love the humor, always laughed through it and imagery I would add as well. Great choice I am impresse
Everyone I know has read that and I never have. I have to say another one I just remember was Flowers for Algarnon. The movie I think was called Charly.
Def two thumbs up on that choice. I loved that book, read it my freshman year of high school. We have two copies in my home actually and I am going to have my oldest, 13, read that next month when he is due for a new novel. Wonderful book
I read the hobbit in the fifth grade..my favorite book up through junior high. I bought a copy for my 13 year old son who hates to read for Xmas...I think he will learn that reading is an enchanting activity after reading it.
I have never heard of that one, mine was probably a tie between the Scarlet Letter and The Great Gatsby
It is a novel written by James Joyce is a semi-autobiographical novel The story describes the formative years of the life of Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and an allusion to the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology, Daedalus.
You know I have never read anything like that in my life, and it sounds very interesting! I will have to check it out, did it impact your life in any way after you read it?
I do not know.But certainly and passively I think. Here somethings I learn as Epiphany ,I think you know what is Epiphany or epiphanic moment - a moment of recognizing something that is very crucial in your life but what you did not know till thi
Yes I know those moments, my life has been full of them actually and I am pretty young to have had all of them I think. That's why I think I might read it.
It's a good book but it's a little heavy. In between the priest's sermon on the thickness of the walls of hell and the stream of consciousness chapter at the end, it can get wild.
Well for awhile I was obsessed with the book of Revelations in the bible and that is heavy, scary, and mysterious so does it compare to that? I haven't read heavy reads in awhile, and I think its time I chose one again.
