24794 I'm currently reading Middlesex and I love it! so bizarre and interesting. A great story that chronicles a twisted family secret. Tales of culture, immgriation, incest, love, industry, and growing up as a freak. The best all-around American novel I've read since To Kill a Mockingbird.

24794 I am now reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame and it's great! :) love it! way different from the Disney movie.

Sounds interesting. Have you read Crime and Punishment? I bet it would be perfect for such a class.

24794 Gave up on Sense and Sensibility for the time being. Very slow-paced. Now I started on the Da Vinci Code.

24794 I finished reading Angels and Demons and loved it! I now started on Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen.

24794 I just started reading Angels and Demons and I love it so far! I was surprisedvar how easy it was to read and understand. I expected the religious story line to get confusing (especially since I'm not religious and know little to nothing about the bible). But Dan Brown explains everything so clearly and he doesn't give unnecessary detail, just gets right to the point. :-) I like that.

24794 Finished the Picture of Dorian Gray. Now reading the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and the Brothers Karamazov.

24794 I stopped reading Twenty Years After because I realized it was very much abridged. Almost done with A Picture of Dorian Gray and I just started The Brothers Karamazov.

24794 I read Jane Eyre about a month ago and recently watched the 90s movie. Pretty good but it didn't have the same passionate love that I imagined in the book.

Oh yes indeed Jada. You should read "Wuth..."


I have read wuthering heights. Didn't really like it. Too dark. No hope at all. I can apprieate it for it's literary merit. Well written just didn't like the story.

24794 Anyone else find it interesting that in Dumas's books women in France had many more rights than in other countries? I wonder why. I guess the French are just more open-minded.

I'll have to put this on my "to-read" shelf. :-)

The competition between the Cardina..."

I love Milady! She is the ultimate villain! D'artagnan's infatuation with her was funny and ironic.
