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?

SithLord: And sadly people, college kids or high school kids, will use his analysis and without any critical thinking motivation for themselves, never really look into the book for what it's worth.  In a time of high society, glimmer and glam and putting on the Ritz, it's a fascinating spotlight of how the 1% lived in that era.  They're no different than they are today except the technology has changed.

Myrtle and Jordan were pretty crazy.

Daisy was shallow, but not crazy.

Jay Gatsby himself was actually pretty crazy.

If I had one hand grenade, I would save it for Emily f*cking Bronte.

Nothing better than a woman who died an old maid and was basically a recluse who had no friends outside of her immediate family writing a tragedy about love.


Mark Twain on Jane Austen: "Every time I read Pride and Prejudice, I want to dig her up and hit her over the skull with her own shin bone." 

/Applies to Bronte as well.

NateAsbestos: The tipping point was when I realized that a sentence I was reading had started two pages back... fark me.


And yet, when Lemony Snickett did it, it was hiLARious. Go figure.

The other book that blew goat chunks: Old Man and the Sea.
