Do you read the classics?


This goes for all genres and sub-genres, and it's outside of a school setting. We all know their stories from references and adaptations, but how often do you go back and read the original 'classic' novels? Some examples could be The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Time Machine, Lord of the Rings, etc. Basically anything that greatly influenced its genre.

    I was going in that direction. All the classics I've read have surprised me by how different they are from adaptations. Some are definitely hard to read, but well worth it for fans of their genres. It's like time travel to a different age.

    I wouldn't deem the Life of Pi a classic quite yet...
