Reading The Forever War right now on a suggestion from a friend. Quick and entertaining read so far.

I think I may do Game of Thrones again next, not sure though.

Read The Old Man and the Sea today as my first exposure to Hemingway. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would like to read another of his works. Any suggestions peeps?

Damned was actually good? I am a fan of Palahniuk's earlier works. Mainly Survivor but I also really enjoyed Rant. Read the back of Damned, thought it sounded ********, and decided I had no intention of reading it.

I love me some Chuck P., so I might be a tad biased, but I thought it was really funny.

Right on. I read the part about her overdosing on weed and laughed to myself, deciding not to read it. Maybe I will give it a chance then since I am also a Chuck P fan. Just haven't read any of his books since Snuff (which I actually liked).

Well all my friends are at school now and I'm not, so I have taken up reading these past two weeks. During this time span, I have read The Great Gatsby, Of Mice and Men, Heart of Darkness, Grapes of Wrath, and To Kill a Mockingbird. I think you can tell I am aiming for reading what are generally considered "classics." And that is what I am looking for suggestions on. Admittedly, I should clarify that by "classics," I am simply looking for anything that would be considered a hallmark of its genre. Although there are undoubtedly many lesser known books that are great, and I am sure there are many recently published books that are such, that is simply not what I am looking for yet.

It may help those who want to suggest books for me if I give my opinions on those books I listed above. Grapes of Wrath was definitely my favorite, Steinbeck's ability to encapsulate the conditions and lives of California migrant workers is just astounding. Gatsby was second, surprisingly. I "read" it in high school, but honestly could have given two shits about it back then, and I was honestly rereading it simply to say I had actually read it(a bit ironic given the subject matter). On rereading it though I gained an actual appreciation for it, I can now understand all of the fanfare, it is truly great. Of Mice and Men was third. I read this after and because of Grapes of Wrath, perhaps I just have a Steinbeck bias. Heart of Darkness I would put fourth, short but powerful. To Kill a Mockingbird was fifth. It was a very enjoyable novel, last on the list primarily because its subject matter appealed less to me than the others.

Also, here is a list of books/authors I am considering for any opinions;

- Ernest Hemingway
- Cormac McCarthy
- Slaughterhouse-Five
- 1984
- On The Road
- Catcher In the Rye
- A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
- Moby-Dick

I wouldn't steer you away from any of those, though I have read barely any Joyce. Don't think I've ever gotten through On The Road in one consistent session.

I personally enjoy the three you have at the top, the most. Would probably add Brave New World by Aldous Huxley to the list, based on what you're looking for.

I also have a lot more free time than I expected, right now, since city schools won't be open for a couple weeks.

Running through this, currently, which should take no time:



Also wanted to reread this one before I check out the movie, because, you know, high school:



Then figured I'd get around to this one, right here:

This is good advice. On the Road is one of my favorite novels ever. Also, if you're looking for classics, make your way to some Faulkner. A Light in August is a beautiful book.
