Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Good thing this list is called "best" (and not "most notorious") books of 1925. This WAS the year Hitler's "Mein Kampf" was published, after all ... ;(


message 3: by Reese (new)

Reese I have shock being in full awareness of anybody having loving feelings for THE MAKING OF AMERICANS, and having such shock means feeling the needing to declare the feeling that I am feeling. The best is the best is the best. But if Gertrude's writing is the best, then the NOT BEST is the best is the best.


message 4: by Thom (new)

Thom Dunn Well, if we put Mein Kampf at the very bottom of the list, would that indicate it's the worst of all those we can think of ?

I understand it's written in bad German prose, and I can avow that as a manifesto, it sucks.


message 5: by Reese (new)

Reese Not surprisingly, I haven't read MEIN KAMPF in German or English -- or Spanish (Was a translation published in Argentina?)

Ideas aside, is Hitler's prose really "worse" than Gertrude's? I fail to understand why those who support the torture of terrorists don't replace waterboarding with the continuous reading (by someone who stutters) of THE MAKING OF AMERICANS and TENDER BUTTONS.


message 6: by Thom (new)

Thom Dunn Tender Buttons ? ....I'll look it up, if only to avoid it.


message 7: by Reese (new)

Reese T,
Please read a bit of it. I'd love to read what you have to say about it.

Search replied "No book found"....Do you have author's name ?

Reese It's one of Gertrude Stein's "masterpieces." The work is short; the reading time is looooonnnnnggggg. Go to www.bartleby.com, and you'll find an online version. If Picasso had sliced and diced the pages, then pasted the fragments on a canvas, "TB" might have been recognized as a work of art as well as a disease.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads A German professor I know once said the German in Mein Kampf was atrocious.

It's pretty bad in English, I can say that much.

I've never felt masochistic enough to slog through the whole thing, but yes, based on the bits I HAVE read I'd second that professor's verdict ...


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It was a masochistic-enough exercise to read it in English!

My friend Ann said I had to read it so I checked it out and tried but no luck. I didn't get far at all.



Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It was by far the most boring reading of my grad course in Nazi Germany, Mein Kampf.
