Dreadnought Corey Stoll is a great actor! Very good movie as well.

Try Garden of Eden. It took him over 20 years to write the book and it was incomplete at his death. It was brought to the publishers by his wife and published about 25 years after his death. It is pretty contreversial because some say that the editing changed the way Hemingway was trying to shape the book. Nonetheless it is a great look into his opinions about relationships between man and woman, gender roles and reverse gender roles even more apparent than it is in Sun Also Rises. I think it was more straigth forward and more "feminene" compared to SAR. It was the first Hemingway book I've read and it quite shocked me.


Thanks I'll look into it. Another good war novel I just recently finished is The Naked and The Dead by Normal Mailer.
Congratulations! Remember, don't think of this as the end as some guys do. Think of it as a beginning.
BladeSlinger Old Man and the Sea is very late novel for Hemingway. It was actually the last one I read of his works. I started FWTBT and moved to The Sun Also Rises and then A Farewell to Arms. His earlier works are complex and dramatic. The Old Man and the Sea is a great short story about determination and, metaphorically, life in general. But, I don't get the same literary entertainment from it as I did his earlier works.
neidnarb11890 For Whom the Bell Tolls is one of my favorites for all time. You should read it immediately.

Doughboys, The Flaming Lips, The Clash.
Right now it's The Menzingers, Strung Out, and Smoke or Fire.
Hmm... Dimsum I think. But it could go either way really.

Baseball, Football, Basketball or Hockey?
Yes. Well, I only listened to a few songs but yes.

Weed or alcohol?
Not particularly.

Capn Crunch or Frosted Flakes?
Nay (Horse Herpes).

Obama or Bush?

I don't usually read Fantasy anyway so it sounds good


Same here. I just finished my first fantasy: The Fellowship of the Ring (working my way through the whole series). But right now I'm taking a break with Johnny Got His Gun before starting on The Two Towers.

So, I just got the book list for my AP Lit class next year. What are your opinions/ideas about these titles?

1. The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini
2. Their Eyes Were Watching God - Zora Neale Hurston
3. King Lear - Shakespeare
4. Othello - Shakespeare
5. Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
6. The Awakening - Kate Chopin
7. Heart of Darkness - Joseph Conrad
8. As I Lay Dying - William Faulkner
9. How to Read Literature Like a Professor - Thomas C. Foster
10. The Scarlet Letter - Nathaniel Hawthorne
11. A Doll's House - Henrik Ibsen
12. 1984 - George Orwell
13. OedipusRex - Sophocles
14. Candide - Voltaire


As I Lay Dying was damn good although it's one of the most difficult books I've read. Heart of Darkness was okay. It's incredibly well written but didn't hold my interest. 1984 is incredible. Those are the only ones I've read.

Правда!

I'm nearly finished with Crime and Punishment right now. I read it two years ago & decided to revisit it, and it was worth it, but I like Notes from Underground and The Brothers Karamazov better. I heard The Idiot is Dostoevsky's best, but I dunno I haven't read it yet. But it probably is, since Iggy Pop even named his best album after it!
I wanna read Anna Karenina this summer, 'cuz I never read Tolstoy, and he's the other big important nineteenth century Russian novelist.


I read Tolstoy's biography before any of his books (I didn't realize who he was at the time). But I reckon, if you anything like me, you garner more respect and comprehension of the books if you understand the writer. If you have an interest for political and theological discourse his biography is quite good (which could be said about his novels as well I guess).

I'm currently reading The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky. I'm a little over 100 pages in and it's really good so far. Have any of you guys read it?


It's on my list along with a few others from him. Have you read Crime and Punishment? I heard The Brothers Karamazov is better than that.
I'm technically not suppose to disclose the details of this event but the lesson I learned from it is don't go into a bar in Ireland and order an Irish Car Bomb. They don't like that for some reason.
Hey everyone. I'm trying to get back into music and work on my writing so I thought I'd come back to UG and meet some like-minded people.
The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me is a the album keeping me zen this year. Necessity is a good word to use.

Alas, some clever microbes don't just cave in to our immune defenses. Some have learned to trick us by changing those molecular pieces of the microbe (its so-called antigens) that our antibodies recognize. The constant evolution or recycling of new strains of flu, with differing antigens, explains why your having gotten flu two years ago didn't protect you against the different strain that arrived this year. Malaria and sleeping sickness are even more slippery customers in their ability rapidly to change their antigens. Among the slipperiest of all is AIDS, which evolves new antigens even as it sits within an individual patient, thereby eventually overwhelming his or her immune system...

...Among such epidemic diseases, influenza is one personally familiar to most Americans, certain years being particularly bad years for us. Cholera epidemics come at larger intervals, the 1991 Peruvian epidemic being the first one to reach the New World during the 20th century. Although today's influenza and cholera epidemics make front-page stories, epidemics used to be far more terrifying before the rise of modern medicine. The greatest single epidemic in human history was the one of influenza that killed 21 million people at the end of the First World War.
