Help me,Pit

I'm taking a Western Civilization class for college. We have to do a book report that's due in a week and a half. I'm having trouble choosing a book. Does anyone know any good ones?

Western Civilization is just a fancy word for European history, for those who don't know.

Great Expectations. It is the worst book ever, but I feel like it fits your needs.

The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. It's loooong, but worth it. Might be too late for you to do it.

I vaguely remember it, but it is about and orphan named Pip who's life is just one big let down. He has these GREAT EXPECTATIONS that never get met.

It's Charles Dickens so you know it's good.

Great Expectations is a great book.

Most of you plebeians lack the necessary inherent qualities to appreciate such a work of art.

Or if you want an actual history text, I suggest this one:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_Leopold%27s_Ghost


It's really interesting if you like European colonial history, and the Scramble for Africa.

London, can't remember the author but is a non-fiction historical novel from London's beginning til the 20th century. But given you have a week you probably wont finish its 1500 page length.
