You could always go the classics route and read Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury or The Old Man and The Sea by Ernest Hemingway. They're both fantastic books and highly regarded.


i disagree completely with these unless you like having a 50 page novel turn into a 200 page torture session.
bradbury almost pulled it off but huge sections should have been pulled out and set on fire.

sorry bill. but i chose to wipe my ass with these books.

Shocked I guess... that's why... we all have our own... opinions. Sorry... having a hard time getting that out.

SWTWC was a class-assigned book in Sallies. I went into it like I went into every OTHER class-assigned book: Aw shit. I started reading it the first night and finished it before dawn. I couldn't put it down. I've re-read it about 20 times in the last 12 years.

TOMATS was a book I had to read in college and another "This is going to be SOOO boring" book. Again, I was blown away by the strength of the main character and the iconic Man v. Nature theme coupled with Man v. Himself.

Sorry you hated the books K, but damn... I love 'em.

ok, old man and the sea may be a classic, but for a short book it seemed to go on forever and was terribly depressing.
