Why did I get the impression you didn't read much?
You must read Watership Down. It is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD. I would put more Os, but you get the point.

Re: Why did I get the impression you didn't read much?
Because I haven't been lately, maybe? Between the ages of 10 and 20, though, if you caught me without a book in my hands, I must have been feeling ill. :-P

Hmm. I'm actually rather fond of Great Expectation and A Tale of Two Cities. And The Fountainhead is a book I cannot help but recommend. I was very impressed with it... which is not to say that I liked it per say, it is not a joy read, but it was quite transformative.

I also liked A Tale of Two Cities, the second half more than the first. Have you read much Ayn Rand? Is The Fountainhead worth reading if I've read Anthem?
Feb. 16th, 2007 02:42 pm (UTC)
I intend to read Anthem, its supposed to be very good. It's also supposed to be very different from The Fountainhead. The Fountainhead is a difficult book and very long. It's a book about ideas and can sometimes be preachy or melodramatic. On the otherhand, it is brilliantly concieved. As I read it I thought, "Wow, and I wanted to be an author. I could never in a million years write something this amazingly involved." Anthem on the other hand, is a book that many people read in high school (even early high school). It is much shorter and easier. That's about all I know about it.

I despise Dickens's writing style. I would rather read the dictionary.
