The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien, it was totally worth it.

Principles of Philosophy - René Descartes

I'm currently reading Dante's Divine comedy.
And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

no way! i think so far (i'm just over half way through) its one of the most engaging books by him i've read.
and i've heard many other S.K. readers hail amongst his best works.

each to their own i suppose, but if majority rules then you're wrong.

Beowulf by Seamus Heaney; this is the first year I actually have to read books for english, unfortuanately. It was previously just SAT prep/other irrelevant crap

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov + The Great Gatsby. Lolita was tough reading.

Lolita is beautiful reading. nabokov's mastery of the english language astounds me. i wish i could write half as well as he does. his prose is amazingly poetic.

anyway now that i am done fellating vladimir nabokov i will move onto my point. the last book i read was The Land of Spices by Kate O'Brien. it was quite dense reading at first, but as soon as i got acquainted with her style the book flew.

Yeah that's what I meant, I found it quite 'dense' as you put it to begin with, but I did get more and more into it as I went along.

Last book I finished was, um, Ugly by Constance Briscoe. I think. I started a couple after, but they were crap. So I'm currently reading the novelisation of Doctor Who episode Castrovalva, which I should finish tonight, The Ode Less Travelled by Stephen Fry on train journeys to and from college, The Canterbury Tales during free periods at college if I have no work to do and Beowulf and Henry V for english lit. Fun fun fun.

hmmmmmm. it's wierd, it is engaging. you sort of get involved with the characters, build them up in your head. however, about 700 pages in, i became restless, willing something to happen. expecting something, anything!! ah well, let us know your views when you finished

The Stand by Stephen King


what did you think of that book mate? i find the ending terrible, pointless and such an anti-climax. the character development was very good, but they grew so much they blocked out any sort of plot!!

The Stand in its entirety kicked ass. Don't diss The Stand, or Mr Flagg is gonna come get you, bitch.

Thats sort of like all were doing in the thing, looking at it on a literal level, and on a symbolic level :s can be good but i s'pose its better than poetry, the worst thing ever, especially when you do the AQA course with poems from different cultures, nebody else taking that course will know what i'm talking about!
