Aldous huxley "A brave new world", i think was an awesome book at first but anyone espect that shitty ending i think he was to much fucked up with LSD, or maybe was the hangover of putting so much shit in their brains that become uninspiring to him write the end of the book, a fucking drug orgy party and he killed himself cause no one understand him, thats sound like kurt cobain, luckily holliwood make to that story a decent ending with Equilibrium a loosely based movie with Christian Bale on it. thanks hollywood

heh, I agree with nietzsche in a lot of his stuff, and I thought the end of Brave New World was hell of poignant.

The sheer majority of novels I read in school, except for The Outsiders and Ender's Game.

Also, a lot of H. P. Lovecraft's work, mainly because of all the pointless exposition.

What did you expect? He wasn't accepted back in the savage lands of Malphais, felt alienated in this society that shunned any sort of emotion or reasoning other than bliss and happiness, and in the end was condemned to live the life of a hermit and go insane. He isn't going to single-handedly bring down the system and liberate the people.

Pila thinks John the Savage should have joined & enjoyed the 'drug orgy party'.

That could have been the greatest ending, he should get "on tune" to deal with his mother death at least is more happier than commit suicide

I suppose that is a good arguement, except for the fact that it would be completely missing the whole message of the novel.

I thought Lullaby by chuck Palahniuk was really terrible. It was not as bad as Elminster: making of a mage though.

And Then There Was None. As bad as some of the novels listed here are or can be, this book is fucking absymal. When I read this in High School, I didn't even bother to finish it, just letting the discussions and tests go by.

It's worth a failing grade to avoid this pisser of a novel, I assure you!

I thought this book had some really interesting shit in it, but the ending just sort of fell apart for me. Were you disappointed by the ending as well? It just seemed to really go nowhere after all that.

And the COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY, bloated, self-important appendix pissed me off. But The Navidson Record was fascinating. I like how a lot of things about the house were suggested rather than flatly spelled out for the reader.

I like the Great Gatsby, The Old Man and the Sea, The Odyessy, Moby Dick, and most of the work of Poe and Twain. They don't make great movies though but I like them.

I do hate Tolkein books or pretty much anything dealing with eleves. Never read a science fiction book I liked either.

GUESS IM JUST CULTURED

Hey, that book was awesome. It was the first dystopian book I read, and that was all the way back in 6th Grade. However, nostalgia may be clouding my judgment. I should go read it again.

Moby Dick. Bad enough it was boring and worse that I read it because it was on a list of books one should read. I think I just skimmed large parts.
