Jim I might have to re-read sometime. Ruined by my 9th grade English Lit teacher.

Yeah, I didn't like it very much back in school either. Teachers seem to like to read a little bit, pick it apart, read, pick, read, pick, etc, which kills the joy and makes it all very tedious.

Devlin Scott My English Lit teacher was wiser. We would read the assigned book and keep a working journal, recording our thoughts and any quotes we found noteworthy. At the designated date we would discuss the book from our notes. She even let us use our notebooks / journals for tests. I pitied those classmates unable to ace the exams. lol

That sounds like a much better way to go about it. But as for allowing the use of notebooks during tests, I never understood why that was permitted. I mean, aren't tests meant to gauge what the students have learned? Mind you, I never complained when a teacher allowed it!

Devlin Scott Our teacher looked at this way, it was more important to learn from the story and let it live with you than to learn just enough to pass and forget it a week later.

Believe me, any student who failed her tests and quizzes was damned as the damned should be. lol


The Pirate Ghost (Formerly known as the Curmudgeon) Just remember Simon's the Super Ego, ... I forget the names of the Id and the ego...

good review. Interesting book. Had to read it for school (and the above was a test question.)

Rickey I read this book in High School over 40 years ago. One of the few books assigned to read in High School that I still remember. It affected me even then.

Thanks, Jina! I don't have enough mysterious, random strangers in my life, so I appreciate you contacting me. I'll be sure to get in touch with you and if you need any personal information, like my social security number or bank account passwords, etc, please don't hesitate to ask for them. Wow, today is really looking up for me!

Katie Conn Wow, that last sentence gave me chills. It's so true. The best books come from a person looking around themselves and seeing how terrible things are. All of my favorite books have that certain tone at one point or another.
