    READ IT it's good. And don't people usually read Animal Farm first? Just curious.

    Nope, but Orwell and Artwood's books are pretty interesting to read.

    1984, of those three you listed, is the only good book, in my opinion.

    I read Animal Farm years before, I just compared it to Lord of the Flies for a project. (It worked really well. ^_^) I know I should read Brave New World. I just.... started re-reading two other series instead...

    I though 1984 was well written, it kind of pissed me off in the end, though.

    Animal Farm was a good read. The idea of it reminded me of A Tale Of Two Cities. (Not comparing writing styles, though.)

    Would you rather do Pride and Prejudice? D:

    What you do is...you read the Wiki entry, read the Sparknotes entry, and watch the movie. No more reading for you.

    Don't worry, you'll like it. You could say its right down your alley.

    Fat Christian that starves little kids and lets many die from disease..ugly guy that gets the girl...insane wife...you know, the dark stuff you like, it's all in the book.

    Think of Jane Eyre as a girl's version of Berserk. Death, starvation, insanity, with a little romance thrown in.

    Heh.

    I sense a distinct lack of demons and violence, not to mention, you know, anything remotely resembling an interesting story (or interesting characters, for that matter).

    No matter. In three weeks, the horror will be behind me, and I'll be reading One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

    The best books I've read in school so far have been A Separate Peace and The Catcher in the Rye. Those two were really, really good. Most of the sophomore English teachers had their classes read Lord of the Flies, which is another one of my favorites, but my teacher opted against it, unfortunately.
