It's a required book for my english class but something I was interested in reading regardless. I dig the characters and storyline but the Romantic influence is a bit much for me. I understand Mary and Percy Shelley were big admirers of nature but the page after page of description and emotional impact of the landscape on the characters makes it tedious to read at points.

I agree. I've read books 10 times as long 10 times as fast. lol

Dracula is a much better book.

Dracula is definitely on my list for summer reading that I hope to get around to. After Dracula I figured I would stick with the theme and go with I Am Legend. I've been meaning to read that book since seeing the movie.

I just read Un Petit Prince today. It had been too long. :)

When I go to Switzerland, I'll probably take this book with me. Those descriptions of the Swiss countryside/alps made me fall in love with that country.

It might have made you fall in love with the Swiss countryside but it made me fall out of love with the book. It does give some beautiful descriptions of Geneva and the surrounding wilderness.

This may be my favorite thread ever on ISH. So many great books that I want to read that I have yet to get to.
