Quote from: Brian on May 25, 2023, 05:02:27 AMI had an American Literature After 1980 class in college. We all disliked Don DeLillo's Underworld so much - including the professor, who hadn't read it in a few years! - that after two classes he said, "Should we give up and move on to the next one?"
Quote from: Brian on May 25, 2023, 05:14:17 AMYeah, I wish I had read White Noise, especially with the recent movie.
Quote from: JBS on May 24, 2023, 07:00:59 PMReally, Finnegan's Wake is easier to read...

Quote from: DavidW on May 25, 2023, 05:05:09 AMI love Of Mice and Men, Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden. I want to someday get to Cannery Row. I really like Steinbeck's down to Earth style and well written characters.
Quote from: (poco) Sforzando on May 25, 2023, 05:41:18 AM... we instead read Euripides' Medea which was much more fun.I am a great lover of Moby Dick, BTW.
Quote from: Franco_Manitobain on May 25, 2023, 05:48:15 AMCount me in as another huge fan of Moby Dick.
Quote from: LKB on May 25, 2023, 07:33:46 AMI've been a Steinbeck fan since around 1980, but only got to Cannery Row about three years ago. It immediately became my favorite fiction from J.S.
Quote from: vers la flamme on May 28, 2023, 12:11:11 PMI must be the only one who liked The Catcher in the Rye. I read it when I was about the protagonist's age, and again some 10 years later, and I enjoyed it greatly both times.
Quote from: ritter on May 25, 2023, 06:02:57 AMI've never been a fan of Marguerite Yourcenar. Her style is so erudite (in what to me feels almost like a bragging exercise) that her prose turns dry IMHO (despite its much-vaunted lyricism).
Quote from: Karl Henning on May 28, 2023, 12:19:55 PMI like that Mel Gibson likes it in Conspiracy Theory
