Another summer gone, still digging through the many many classics I avoided, here we go: The Picture of Dorian Grey:I like this book a lot, a lot. great characters, great message, full of wit and wisdom. I recommend, is a wordy book, be awares. The Entire John Carter of Mars series (5 books I thinks): Very much fun, and pretty obvious E.R. Burroughs is a fan of Alexandre Dumas(me too)...John Carter is very much like D'Artagnon in 3 Muskett Ears...only on Mars..without the big hat. Recommend for Sci-Fi fans, but not for others. Peter Pan: Very much enjoy the writing style, is sort of conversational narrative. Has been adapted to film very well IMO. Recommend for all. The Prince-Machiovelli: Boring, and boring. I'm sure there's something to gleen from this, but, I'm no fan of the political/historical/subjective motivation for the writing in the first place. Probably significant to the time it was authored, but I just felt like I was going through the motions of reading. Around the world in 80 days: I like, fun....you know there's no hot air balloon in the story? Why they always adding a balloon in the film reditions? I remind myself of Phileas Fogg sometimes. Good and Evil: boring. very repetitious. Not unlike The Prince, it probably has greater significance to people reading it back in the day. Various short stories by Philip K. Dick (he wrote the books that would become the films Blade Runner, and Total Recall, among others): I like his darkness. He almost forces you to disregard convention. If/when his writing becomes more poular...again, I think it has the potential to ignite a thought revolution, not unlike Rand. I'm sure I'm forgetting something...oh ya, Vonegut....read some short stories i likes.
