I’ve finally got time to contribute to my own thread so here goes my ramble :P
PortuGoose I love ‘Brave New World’. What did you think of it?
The last book I read was ‘Wuthering Heights’ which was one of those novels I always wanted to read just because it’s a classic but I was convinced it wouldn’t do much for me (a bit like when I ploughed through ‘Sons and Lovers’) but I absolutely fell in love with it. It is without doubt one of my favourites now and I wished I’d studied it at school so I could have delved into it a bit more.
My all time favourite is ‘To kill a Mocking Bird’. I recommend that book to anyone. It’s probably not the most unoriginal suggestion in the world but it is well worth a read even if you only end up finding Scout dressing up as a giant ham interesting.
‘All My Sons’-Arthur Miller is fantastic too for anyone who likes stories based around the ‘American Dream’. I quite like reading plays and it’s very short so anyone with an attention span as short as mine should enjoy it.
I’ve also recently read and recommend:
Dan Brown’s ‘Angels and Demons’ which I feel is his best work but that might just be because I have been to many of the places mentioned in the book. Brown’s work is much better than the film too.
‘The Straw Me’n- Michael Marshall
‘Watership Down’ (yes, the one about bunnies)
‘An Inspector Calls’- JB Priestley which is another play.
I’m planning on tackling ‘The Day of the Triffds’ because Keith told me to. Has anyone read it?
