The perks of being a wallflower, it's not my type so I could not make it after the first 50 pages.

Muuuuuuuuuuuuum! You don't like Shakespeare? My theatre major heart is crying...

Not me. OMG! I adore him, my Culture research was about his life. I meant Tolkien.

Well, its not that I dislike his stories, I just never understood them! :lol: So are you saying I should give him a try again, maybe I'll be able to understand the wording better? Because back in high school I was completely lost, the only time my english teacher looked to me and I didn't have an answer for her... :-( And oh! A theater major!....I miss my Drama classes!

You can understand them but by you hear and the help of This editions (I tried them, they are noted and with translations of what Shakespeare meant :) ...

The Hobbit. I read a few pages, but it was late night and somehow I was creeped out because of the Necromancer? But I wasn't able to pick it up since that. I'm thinking of opening it again, but I'm definitely going to dread Fili, Kili and Thorin's death. I don't exactly know how it happens, and don't tell me. I am the worst Tolkien fan that ever existed. :'(
Did you know that Shakespeare said (or wrote in one of his books, plays, whatever) "Kill him dead!" ? Some how I think it's funny :yes: Yup, I'm weird :p

I have read it in 2 days (English is my 2nd language ;) ) .

Shakespeare is amazing, he might meant the living dead ;) .

It's the size of an average children's novel, so I think I should be able to finish it in a few hours.

3. The Silmarillion - I think I've read all of it at this point, but never cover-to-cover, despite having tried to many times. I just read my favourite parts over and over and skip the ones I don't care about quite so much. It's all about the Noldor, really. Men? What Men?


Ugh, so true. It's just so incredibly hard to read it all chapter after chapter.. Much more fun to pick some part and just start reading!

I've never finished the last book of the Inheritance series. Although I liked the first three parts, the fourth part never caught my full attention so I put it away after a few chapters.

They say it's not as good as the others but I need to know for myself.

Death of a Salesman. Had to read it for my English literature class and ended up just reading the cliffnotes. I'm a good reader, but I just couldn't do that book. At all.

Why is there a sad face? :P It's a book no one should even start. :throw:
I haven't read it so I shouldn't judge but I have so much hate for that book and its fans
