Cindy Some of these have sibling in them, but I wouldn't call them a GOOD relationship. Did you just want positive relationships or not?

I was thinking the same thing. Dysfunctional families are far more interesting!


message 3: by new_user (new)

new_user Some of these books just barely mention siblings at all. Aren't they supposed to be books featuring siblings with important roles?


message 4: by Jane (new)

Jane I don't see how Austens "Emma" fits into this list and would delete it, if there aren't any obligations.

You've got my vote :-) I don't see how it fits either. But there are several others on this lists I have my doubts about as well.

I agree, see also my earlier message...

Which ones? If there isn't a good explanation I think we should delete this books.

I admit it is a long time since I've read some of the books on this list, but there were still some that made me think hard because I couldn't recall anything about "the powerful bond of siblings", as it says in the description. For instance To kill a mocking bird I remember as a father and daughter story but not as a 'sibling' thing. The catcher in the rye I didn't like, even though I had to read it several times :-( but there I also can't remember a 'powerful sibling bond'. But then again, it must be some thirty years since I've read the book :-) Persuasion is another one I'm racking my brains about... Again, that's also a long time ago (even though I loved the book). And then there is The bluest eye, another one I don't remember as having a 'powerful bond of siblings'. There are a few others as well, but maybe it's just my memory failing me, who knows ;-)

But as far as Jane Austen's Emma is concerned I'm sure, as Emma was an only child, as far as I remember (and even if she wasn't, then there was definitely no "powerful bond of siblings").

Thank you booklovinglady.
If there aren't any arguments I'll delete this book:
- Harper Lee "To kill a mockingbirg"
- Salinger "The catcher in the rye"
- Austen "Persuasion"

Don't delete them on my account, 'cause as I said, I'm not a full 100% sure (I would have deleted them myself if I was). If you've read them yourself and you agree, perfect. If not, just wait until someone confirms my doubts, I'd say. There are books by Charles Dickens on the list I have doubts about as well, but as I said, it is a long time since I've read most of these books, so who knows...


message 11: by Jane (new)

Jane Dear Booklovinglady,

Then we wait a little bit more ;-) because I can not confirm the doubts about this books. It would be nice if the people who added the books to the list could say something about why they added them.

Greetings
J. Freitag

Seems like a good solution :-)

Joy In TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, Jem and Scout are brother and sister and their relationship is very close and an important part of the story. It is Jem who is told, "It is a sin to kill a mockingbird." It was Jem who was told that "It is a sin to kill a mockingbird."


message 14: by Juliet (new)

Juliet Aharoni I loved Lee Harper's novel 'To Kill a Mockingbird, so I chose it for my high school students. They loved the novel, and I could see how improved their English became after a few weeks.
