I saw it not long after it came out, and not even newness could save it from being being shit. I think it might also be the original source of my hatred for John Leguizamo.

Still not as gay as Twilight.

It’s a fever dream from which you’ll never wake - avoid at all costs.

I would agree. It's just so... what? You have GOT to be kidding me!

Does that include sending a PM to see if she was okay? Cos I did that. But no more than that. We were worried about her - well, jwb wasn't of course but some of us were - when the fires were raging through Spain.

I view it as the Twilight of the '20s. A novel filled with vapid characters, a vapid love story, and a boring plot. At least the Great Gatsby didn't spawn sequels.
The Lesser Gatsby?

As for books at school, it's a sad fact that we are obligated to study books whether we like them or not, and when it's the "not" we are likely to be put off them for life. That's a shame because some of those books we might have enjoyed if we first came across them as adults. That's why I'm mentioning these books and when I read them as well:-

At school:
Macbeth by Shakespeare - didn't like
Great Expectations - liked at first, then got bored
Lord of The Flies - liked and then re-enjoyed as an adult
Animal Farm - ditto

As an adult:
Moby Dick - unable to read even one chapter
Great Gatsby - enjoyed, partly by visualizing the movie of that elegant, doomed era. I was sufficiently impressed to read Tender Is The Night, which I preferred.
Tale Of Two Cities - the only Dickens I have so far actually enjoyed.

In order:

Hated this with a passion. The only Dickens, other than Martin Chuzzelwit, that I don't like. I just hated Pip so much. And what an ungrateful little bastard.

Had never read this but read it for Karen and liked it a lot. Read it twice actually.

Didn't read it but saw the, um, cartoon. Can't remember if I liked it.

Superb book, absolutely superb. But I'm surprised to find you don't like other Dickens. Which ones have you read?

I don't get this take to be honest. What do you find so terrible about it?

No it does not.

It's short enough that there's no harm in reading it though.
Stop that. What about Something Wicked? Or The Martian Chronicles?

On a scale of 1 to Ted Kaczynski, how bad is the technophobia in it Frown?

No it's not. it's about the Nazi-like suppression of knowledge.

I find the plot lazy and his philosophy disagreeable. His style is fine but not particularly impressive. I've read The Martian Chronicles, it's OK for one read much like F451 but still pretty weak.

Also thank you for proving my point about how people think that censorship is the only theme of the book.
