Bettie I should be able to add myself to this list as I fit the criteria : Enduring hardship, especially the freezing cold..

message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

The Cremation of Sam McGee? did he finally get warm?


message 4: by Stephen (new)

Stephen The Old Man and the Sea?

Why is that on this list? It was set in the tropics, no?


message 5: by Will (new)

Will Byrnes No Smilla's Sense of Snow? or is it there and I just missed it?

It fits right into the first half of criteria:

Enduring hardship,

It could be argued that the Old Man didn't suffer as much hardship as we did having to read it. Meat and poissons.

Good Call Alice

Darren This list is bullshit. The Oresteia? The Jungle? (I know it's about America's food production, and not an actual jungle, but still, it's not about the fucking snow, either). A Season in Hell? That's Paris... World War Z?

Suggest you look on the bright side Darren. The top of this list shows a plethora of votes for true hardship stories. If you have some aberrant shit stringing along like a kite tail, that's no different than the overfed swordfish in my 20-gallon tank. He's mostly orange, and pretty, and does his job with the ladies. I'm saying, shit happens. Tired of dealing with it ? Then fall back and deal with your own.

Darren That made no sense.

Saying you nearly always find ludicrous choices trailing along on these listopias. The value of them usually lies at or near the top.


message 11: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl So if the list is about enduring all kinds of hardship, maybe it should be titled "Enduring Hardship." Because I don't remember The Old Man and the Sea being set in a cold clime, either...I'm confused. I'll continue to vote cold books...not hot books...
