1218 I've read them - but for political science in college.

1218 Suzanne - Both The Count of Monte Cristo and Oscar Wilde are great. Am reading Vanity Fair now and enjoying it.

1218 Started The Gunpowder Plot by Antonia Fraser yesterday.
1218 No, he's still fording the river.

1218 Yeah, Edward has some distinctly "controlling" attributes, and in the "real world" those can often be a warning sign.
1218 Snort!

Lucky you!
1218 I thought you were, but I wasn't quite sure, LOL.

My favorites in the series, I think, are Little House in the Big Woods and The Long Winter.

I suspect it would have been nearly impossible for little girls growing up in the 70s not to have read them! They were everywhere - in school and on TV, even.

1218 Alright, books at 20 paces!
1218 Gee, Kaion, you must not have grown up with the Little House books, which some of us certainly did. For me they would indeed be a trip down memory lane, and not because I grew up in a log cabin. (I grew up in a split-level ranch, actually.)

1218 I personally prefer Brave New World to 1984; but 1984 was rather shoved down our throats in school (probably inevitable for... wait for it... the class of 1984), and Brave New World wasn't.

1218 Fiona - it probably doesn't help that LKH is apparently working through her divorce in the Anita Blake books. A certain werewolf with issues is based on the ex-husband. This doesn't help.

I stopped reading them around book 10 or so. Didn't like the direction they were clearly headed for.

1218 Just started The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag - so far, starting well. My mother liked it about as well as The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, so I'm optimistic.

1218 Just finished Among the Mad by Jacqueline Winspear - that's a good series, Maisie Dobbs.

If you assume that "he" is mostly Thomas Cromwell, it helps a lot. It occasionally is someone else, but mostly it's Cromwell.

1218 I've finished some classics I didn't like - for classes I was taking, so perhaps that doesn't count.

Because believe me there is no reason I would have read Waiting for Godot three times if it hadn't been for class assignments!

1218 My take on Mr Bennett is more-or-less Ron's.

1218 Read The Uncommon Reader: A Novella yesterday - much enjoyed it. Four stars.

1218 Still don't know who it was from!

My mother may have found a note in it; I'll have to ask her. (She grabbed it first.)
