Wow, none of those were included?

I've never read Paradise Lost or East of Eden, but those are two I've heard good things about and do plan on reading eventually.

I also could not believe that Watership Down was not on the list.

I've read all of Edgar Allan Poe, cause I was totally into him in the late 90's. I didn't die my hair black, wear eye make up or wear necklaces out of tiger's teeth, I just dug him. It was a challenge to get through it all, but in the end I was so sick of his shit that it killed the thrill.

Ya'll shoulda asked me to recite The Raven when we were together 'cause I totally can. At least I think I still can... Not in James Earl Jones' voice, unfortunately.

So many on the list I've never even heard of. Quite honestly, though, the names don't grab me.

The Raven should only ever be recited in an Earl James voice. If you can't do the voice, don't do the Raven.

Oooh, Gabo and I are now bfffffff. I was way into Poe in high school, then college. But I wasn't goth AT ALL. I used to be able to recite the Raven by memory too. (AND do the James Earl Jones voice! wait.. scratch ) I still can, but it doesn't flow as quickly.

Kris, how was SAtanic verses? I've been told to read that. Is it atleast interesting? I thought it was scary, or like the satanic bible or something. But apparently it's not. What did you think?

Really, it was something that I'd never read again. Wasn't interested.

nope. I heard it would upset my love of the animated, so I skipped it.

My mom had a collection of Poe's work. I read it during my junior year. Yeah, it was a dark year for me.

Yeah, the book's nothing like the cartoon but it's still good.

I had to commit The Raven* and about a dozen other poems to memory in 1999 because I had a 3 unit English test for my HSC. I guess none of that would mean anything to people outside of New South Wales, but it was a big deal.

My argument for one of the essays I had to do in the test was that Australian poetry sucks. Never got the exact results, but I think that one would've let me down.

*I'd already memorized The Raven by that point anyway, 'cause I thought it was awesome. Plus chicks dig cultured guys. At least that's what I thought; the theory never did pan out.

I have finished 1984, To Kill A Mockingbird and Catcher in The Rye since last post.

Didn't get the point of 1984. Orwell had already done Animal Farm as a critisism of Stalin's leadership and communism in general. I didn't feel the need for another book on it that was a worse story. The main character is ... meh. I just didn't care, he was very 1-dimensional and not intentionally. All the other characters were too. They story was kind of realisitc, but at the same time very unatainable. You can tell a lot of thought went into the world it's set in though, they have a fully worked out world and class system and even another language.

To Kill A Mockingbird was good, So many great messages against prejudices. I can see why it's taught in so many schools. Loved all the characters, well except the ones your supposed to dislike and I did dislike them but at the same time, it's written so you can see both sides of the story, and even if you don't agree with the actions of the "bad" characters, you can see the path that led to that action and you understand them.

Catcher in the Rye was also good. Very well written, believable characters, and again a good one to teach with, especially with teens as I think the storey is as applicable to teens today as it was back then. It deals with teasing, bullying, puberty, sex, teen agnst, so mant things that all teens go through, but it does it in a subtle way so that it doesn't come off being preachy.

I'm gonna try and get as many of the books on this list and read them.

There's a few lines near the top with stars at the end. Anyone know what they're for?

To Kill A Mockingbird is my all time favorite.

At the start of the list of books. Numbers 6 - 11 have stars at the end and a few through the list have question marks as well.
