Good read. It was one of my favorite growing up. I also liked the movie (the 1962 version with Gregory Peck).

I finished the Tipping Point a few months ago, and Life of Pi last month. Both are great reads. Recently reading The 7 Habits of HIghly Effective Teens. No one in my class bothered to even open it, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Just as TIME polled hundreds of the best authors to get the ultimate best ever list, ISH should do the same. It would be cool if everyone did a top 10 and then someone would tally them up.

Of course many of the books could be selected only once, but I'm sure enough books would be selected multiple times to make this interesting.

I have a feeling it would work much better with movies. Could be fun either way though. Start 'er on up!

Just read Steps by Jerzy Kosinski. It is in my top 5 of all time which is hard to break into. Check it out.

Imagine Kafka + David Lynch.

I cant decide if its a great dark fast pace novel or an exploitation story that is merely full of shock value...
A lot of great stuff toes that line. I guess I couldn't really explain why Steps works while most other stuff of its kind fails with me. Steps is just like a punch in the gut and I can't not think about it.

Plus the style is just unlike anything else. The way a vignette will just end.

"Almost all of us on the jury were able to discuss and imagine how he had committed the crime and what had impelled him to do it. To clarify certain aspects of his case, some of the jurors acted out the role of the accused in an attempt to makethe rest of us understand his motives. After the trial, however, I realized that there was very little speculation in the jury room about the victim of the murder. Many of us could easily visualize ourselves in the act of killing, but few uf us could project ourselves into the act of being killed in any manner. We did our best to understand the murder: the murderer was a part of our lives; not so the victim."

Have you read The Count of Monte Cristo, and if so, which did you enjoy more?

I checked it out from a jump-offs library. I always held off on seeing the film(which has led to my blackness being questioned) because I had never read the book.
