Only one essay?! My 6th form English teacher assigned us an essay on this book every other day! It made what would have been an enjoyable book, loathsome.

There were a lot of books that I hated in high school that I quite like now, I'm not sure if thats because I'm older or if its because I'm no longer being forced to read them.

On the subject of books for essays.... We had to do 'The Lovely Bones' last year, and I actually really liked the book. It's one of my faves tbh, I thoroughly enjoyed reading and writing about it. smile

We have cool teachers. grin

Posted:I think studying a book is the best way to make you hate it with a passion.

Unless it's "Dispossessed", cos that's just sh!thouse (MNS, did you have to do that?)
Or Of Mice and Men (painful)
Or 100 Years Of Solitude (incest = NOT NECESSARY!!!!! Although I realise that most people love that book, so maybe it simply was because I studied it!)

Or Chaucer...cos I studied the General Prologue to the Canterbury Tales and that was still friggen AWESOME!

Actually, I generally find that 'classics' often just suck. Because Don Quixote was pretty damn painful too...or maybe that's just a trend with my spanish lit subjects hmmmm....I always make a point of trying to finish books, but Don Quixote is the only one I can remember not finishing out of painful boredom!

Posted:I didn't study dispossessed, Miss Dragon, though I did study of mice and men... admittedly I never read it, I just watched the flick, which wasn't too bad.

John Malkovich is pretty good in that, from memory.

B: Despite being ill for most of it, had a good weekend, helped 2 friends (who didn't know eachother before I interfered mwahaha) solve a mutual problem, managed to repack everything into my bags before I travel later today/tomorrow and managed to meet some very friendly squirrels who told me to hide lots of nutella in Aston's house

Posted:Dispossessed was written by someone who was expelled from Geelong College TWICE (including once for having a still!) so it sounded like it was going to be good...but it was so bad, most of my friends did a ritual burning of theirs!

I loved the Wife of Bath smile Haven't read her tale though...I should probably do that ey!

Dispossessed is Ursula le Guin, yes? Did not know that she managed to get expelled twice from the same place. Pretty good going actually....

Posted:Originally Posted By: astonDispossessed is Ursula le Guin, yes? Did not know that she managed to get expelled twice from the same place. Pretty good going actually....

Not the Dispossessed that I studied. It was a novel written in blank verse about a bankrupt farming family when the bank was trying to buy back the house and everything was a metaphor for everything, and what wasn't was a foreshadowing, it was all juxtaposed, and even without all that, it was boring as batsh!t. Because, really, the cat throwing up on the doorstop is NOT symbolic of the bank repossessing the house!!!!

Also I recently found a song called Fire grin By Scooter, it's so awesome I had to use it for my first public performance that last saturday. My old exchange student told me that in germany they would make fun of you for listening to scooter even though he's from there no one there listens to him XD

Went to Frankenmuth today for German club. It's an old German settlement. Oh my lord it's been so long since I've stuffed myself with that much food. Probably not since the hiking trip up the Alps in Leutasch when I ate 17 schnitzels, and fries XD, and lots of Kraut when the schnitzel was gone laugh3

I will never understand how I ate so much food in one sitting o0 Also the beer was good tongue2
