Yes, and it sucks just like all the other school books. That rock falling on Piggys head was the only good thing.

I had to read it for English. I thought it was horrible when I first read it but when I reread it in more depth, it was pretty good.

Stupid fatass, I like how the author makes it like governments, Dictatorship and Democracy, I assume you read this in some sort of government class?

No, actually, it was in my honors english class. But we are talking about the whole governments thing. I just love everything relating to Simon. Pretty much... well, the first half of the book was meh. As soon as that dead guy parachutes in, it becomes awesome.

I thought it was pretty good. I should probably read it again b/c I rushed through and cannot remember much.

That, The Great Gatsby, and Animal Farm are probably my favorite books.

i read it last year for school, i thought it was alright, especially compared to the normally required readings. very thought provoking. i always found it ironic how the fire used to kill ralph actually got them saved. and i always wondered, what would the boys be like after going back, especially after killing off some of them....

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?


I met Sonic Youth on June 30th, and Mars Volta on Oct 20th.

I think everyone in an American high school has read this at some point.

It was the only task I would undertake...

I think the real question is, has anybody here read it that hasn't been forced to.

The answer is no. But yes I have read it.



I read it, and it was my own choice. I loved it. Then, I was required to read it and I still loved it.
This is a boring signature. Deal with it.

I read it and thought it was pretty good. This, 1984 and The Picture of Dorian Gray are the best school-required books I've read.

I personally hate the book, and every other book I've ever had to read in English, simply because they force us to over analyze every book into a boring, worthless, over-analyzed, dull, pile of bull sh1t. If I didn't study every ****ing letter in that book 1000 times then yes I could see how it would be a nice book.

It's a great book, indeed. But maybe posting it in the literature thread? I never really get a response, but maybe you will?

By the way, why would you say that books you read in class aren't very good?
#24
Yeah I read this when I was about ten and I thought it was crap; I never thought people would behave in that sort of way and that the story was ridiculous, unfortunately as I have gotten older, more cynical, and generally depressed with society, I realised the horrific truth the story and the unstoppable natural evil of mankind

Well, we had to read Great Expectations last year, and that was COMPLETELY boring. We had to read A Tale Of Two Cities earlier this year, and it was also dreadfully boring up until the third book, when everything started coming together. Then it was good.

It was definitely interesting....

I read it this year and hated it. I probably would've liked it if I hadn't been forced to read it. I had to do a project on it a while back where I had to redo the movie poster with modern characters.

finished it the other day. took our test on it today for world lit.

ill give it a meh. it couldnt really capture my interest. in that class though we finished reading 1984, and that was amazing (took a while to get started though)

and in senior comp we finished reading The Kite Runner (which was instantly captivating to me), now we're reading 1 book outta 6 choices, and i chose A Brave New World
#31
It's a bit disheartening that I had to analyse the damn thing so much to get any enjoyement out of what Golding was trying to say with novel.

Reading it just as a story about boys getting stuck on an island was terribly boring. Piggys death was the only good part of it.

That, and when we watched the movie and jack yells "Eat **** and die!" to someone.

I read it last year for my Honors English class and it was the only book I really didn't like that we read. It was way to dense for me to get into. Cyrano De Bergerac, Julius Caesar and The Odyssey were my favorites from that class.
#36
i dont understand why people only remember piggy's death when simon got killed so much worse lol
YEAH! ಠ_ಠ
#37
Ogh I hated that book. Not for the content but for the writing style.. It was so unecessarily hectic and overemphasized everything, making the climactic bits muddled and muted

If you haven't already, you should give Anthem a read.


Also, I haven't read LOTF. I don't know if I want to either.
