ZAZ: After reading the book 10 years later, I learned that the movie The World According to Garp had a happy ending. John Irving sure knows how to bring you down.


That seems to happen to a lot of books that get turned into movies. I'm sure it's because the average movie goer wants to see something positive or happy to escape from their own lives for a little while.

the lord god: Welcome to my favorites list.

I don't think people really like movies with endings that leaves you depressed.

That should be truly awesome. She is a very talented writer, and he is simply the greatest musical mind of my generation.

stenciledb: ....aannnnd, he went limp. What's wrong, son? Not used to someone calling you out on your trolls?


Huh? Not liking the exact same authors as you isn't trolling. Trolling is when your tampon fuse gets lit and you start blubbering about how you're gonna shade some "little kid" the "dumb*ss" color.

But, back to Hemingway. Have you actually ever read any of his garbage? Most technical manuals for industrial machinery are more exciting that what he writes. That dude from a week ago that was tweeting while he was supposedly on LSD makes Hemingway look like the most pathetic, piss-poor hack writer that's ever set foot on this planet. Don't believe me? Here's a pdf of Hills Like White Elephants. Read that(if you're able to stay awake, that is) and come back and tell me how great you think he is.

Or, if you're upset because I called The Great Gatsby boring, then you've never actually read it. And don't ask me for my opinion about The Catcher in the Rye. You really will Hemingway yourself.

stenciledb: .......you could stop using cliches to insult someone, but I forgot this was elementary school. It's ok princess, if your mom can't find a Hemingway she can still read you something else. Maybe it will have pictures in it!


Retard is a cliche, now?

Sheesh...you're really gonna get all bent out of shape because someone on the internet doesn't like Hemingway? Are you suffering from Terminal PMS or something? Take a handful of Midol and relax before you go out and Hemingway yourself.

stenciledb: you just got shaded the dumb*ss color, little kid


Oh no! Now I won't be able to sleep at night! What will I ever do?

Wait a second....I'll just read about half a paragraph of Hemingway and I'll be out like a light. I would shade you, but "retard" isn't an available color.

PacManDreaming: The only thing more boring than The Great Gatsby is anything written by Hemingway. Then again, watching paint dry while on a Thorazine drip and eating handfuls of Lithium pills are more exciting than Hemingway.

I could get behind a faithful adaptation of The Grapes of Wrath, however.

Um, Prince already has written the seminal tome 'Pu$$y Control'.
