Default The Literature Thread

This is a thread to discuss novels, plays, poems, etc. Not sure if anyone here really likes good literature, but I figured I'd give it a shot.

Anyway, I just got done reading 1984 for the first time. It was very, very good. I liked it a lot, though the end really surprised me. I'm now reading Travels with Charlie by John Steiback. I really like it, as well. It's not one of his most popular books, has anyone read it before?

Animal Farm was pretty good when we read it in school. Lord of the Flies wasnt bad either. Some real good books though (if you're into Fantasy/Adventure): Pendragon, Farsala Trilogy, Abhorsen Trilogy, Inheritance Trilogy, and anything by Diane Wynne Jones

My favourite book of all-time is 1984 by Orwell...

Right now I'm reading 'the Plot Against America' by Phillip Roth.

The Scotish one is very hard to read. The Giver is a very elementary utopian novel, but still very good. It says alot about conformity. Fahrenheit 451 is very good. I'll explain more later.

OK, I've got more time. Fahrenheit 451 is a bit hard to explain and it makes you think about the ideas that literature implants in us, but it's very good. I highly reccommed it. 1984 is very, very good. Surprising end, and it makes you think, a liot like F451. Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe is very good and it deals a lot with colonialism and adjusting to surroundings. A Tale of Two Cities is incredible. One of my favorite novels. It's a long read, but the imagery and the plotline are just incredible. Brave New World is a lot like F451 and 1984. It's another utopia novel, but it deals a lot more with the ideals of being truly happy, and I've actually written a little something based on those ideas experssed within the novel. Animal Farm is a very good historical novel that helps break down how Italy and the USSR became such communisty nations. If anyone has any reccomendations, I'd love to hear them.

Any books by Orson Scott Card are great. Start out with "Ender's Game" and "Ender's Shadow". Also, I like the Harry Potter books lol. Those things capture my attention and I can't stop reading them. It pisses me off that the movies are so childish and the names of the books are g.ay. But they really are good books.

Lord of the Flies is my all-time favorite book btw, if you haven't read it, you have to now.

ehh, when i started it i was 15, so it was kind of a teenage light- reading romance drama type. It has grown over the past three years more into a young adult semi autobiographal depiction of my life (and a few others I have known or come in contact with have inspried the plots). Deals with urban violence, deception, love, jealousy, drugs, death, coming to grips with reality, insecurity and saying goodbye (trust, they all tie together lol)

Named it "Two Players At Different Games" because of the infidelity and cheating habbits of the main character.

havent wrote in a month though, i'm in a major block

My school gave me a pretty long summer reading list:

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky (for AP Lit)

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck (for AP Lit)

Hardball by Chris Matthews (for AP Gov)

Night by Elie Wiesel (for religion)

It's Greek to Me by Michael Marcone (for Latin)

Looking forward to the first two, don't know what to expect from Hardball (anyone here read it?), already read Night, and have no idea about the last one.

I'm a bigger fan of Poetry then I am of Novels. Some of my favorites and recommendations:

Taylor Mali - The Impotence of Spellchecking
Miguel Pinero - Seekin the Cause
Bob Holman - Harry Potter Pokemon
Beau Sia - Open letter to the Entertainment...
Celena Glenn - I Nail my Palms

More contemporary and spoken word poets, but they are very good.

I'm reading The Invisible Man - Ralph Emerson a the moment. It's an excellent book about stereotyping and race. even though it was written immediately post-WWII, it's amazingly relevant to today's society.

My personal favorites I've read are: The Grapes of Wrath (literary style masterpiece) and Slaughterhouse V (kurt Vonnegut). Lord of the Flies is pretty good, but in no way is it on par with several others.

I hope to read 1984, The Catcher in the Rye or The Perks of Being a Wallflower by the end of summer. I've got 7 days riding in somebody's car, so i should be able to knock out at leat 2.
