Although i didn't read this book yet, i know i will regret reading Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie, because apparently it's mandatory for me to read it since it's on my 9th grade reading list.

The Silent Army. Basically it's a twist on the movie Fido except for the fact that the zombies still have consciousness and can think. Also there's some weird woman who can control peoples emotions. All in all the book was incredibly slow and it took me forever to get through it.

Twilight. /sighs

It ruined my perspective on vampires, werewolves, and just about anything mentioned that book. Now, whenever I think of vampire, I see the sparkling Edward Cullen in my mind, and not, indeed, Dracula.

Bandon Sanderson- the way of kings
Patrick Rothfuss- the name of the wind... 3rd read though
Terry Goodkind- confessor... not his best but part of a series soooo i have to.
and thats it for now.

somewhat of a biblophile. btw, Orwell is a great writer, the book only sux because your forced to read it, and the giver is awesome! read 1984 again without the school work and its really not bad.

1984.... Damn Book.


Be careful what ya say, Big Brother's watching... Or not. I never got into the book and i really hate it. Although i hear references every now and again... I don't want to even imagine having to read it again (since it changed from being on the 9th grade reading list to the 11th/12th grade list).

On a semi-related note, i read The Book Thief for the first time ever. It was such a great read, and it never failed in putting an image in my head. It's just fantastic.


You know that book is banned in most countries because people fear it will influence people to fight their government. It's easy for you to hate something simply because it's in a schools curriculum, but you need to find your own interests and stop attributing all associations of bad literature to their relationship to education.

1984 is a masterpiece about a realistic and potential reality, and woke millions up to the reality of Totalitarian Socialism, and how history can be created. All written by a man who lived in Stalin ruled Soviet Russia. Where being a Socialist or Communist was completely expected.

The man himself wrote this book, himself a Democratic Socialist, as a warning AGAINST the tyranny that their 'Socialism' of the time was going to become if not stopped. He did this at the complete hate and disdain of all of Russia condemning him and labeling him an enemy of the state, and risked his life in writing the book just to state a realistic warning about the troubles of humans with power.

Big brother isn't watching. Big brother just says he's watching, then the fear of you thinking he is watching, is enough to keep you obedient. That's the big brother part of the theme. Nobody was paying close attention, but they had no way of knowing because big brother said he was watching them. It really shows how people can be herded like sheep.

Then again what I am saying, anything that has crucial life lessons, or realistic themes depicting the pros and cons of utopian and dystopian societies in the most grand and epic fashion, which is what invented popular culture to begin with, must be terrible. knewledge is stoopid.

You can't hate the book. You aren't allowed, it's mentally incomprehensible and psychologically impossible, because you can't hate something if you don't know jack shit about it or the real world. What you hate is four numbers.

The anthropologist who wrote that book had so many flawed concepts that it was never accepted, beyond being picked up by schools if they chose to. Your school probably just ordered a bunch of copies of anything they could find relating to humans being an animal.

It's not a book worth taking seriously to begin with.
