PizzaJedi81: DeadintheShadows: graduate level literature courseHorrific Novels of the 21st Century?
K.B.O. Winston: DeadintheShadows: Wuthering Heights stood as the worst book I ever read for a long time. Then I was forced to read Twilight for a graduate level literature course...At what school? DeVry?
KatjaMouse: For many years Gatsby was one of my favorite books despite the fact I found every character within to be a repugnant example of a human being for one reason or another.
ristst: I still can't figure out how this book tops the list of the greatest American novels.I had to read it in college and I damned near didn't survive the ordeal (it was the most boring book I've ever read).
Faddy: Someone explain how Daisy represents the death of the American Dream. I have people say that i a major theme. Is it because despite Gatsby being really rich his new money couldn't get him some top shelf old money pussy meaning that it doesn't matter how rich you are it is what country club your father belonged to.
Jekylman: Plant Rights Activist: shortymac:/I was really sad that I was the pretty much the only one who wasn't sleeping when we were listening to the AUDIO BOOK in HONORS English class.[encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com image 221x228]I would highly recommend audiobooks of traditionally difficult novels. They definitely add a different dimension to the narrative, and can help put boring passages in perspective so that you can actually get something out of them.Then again, I'm a literature nerd.
