This was an excellent read. Huck and Jim, a freed slave, journey down the Mississippi River and meet up with Tom Sawyer. Lots of humour.
A classic that everyone should try.
An unsettling look at the 19th-century settlement of the American West. Men engaged in extreme brutality against one another.
I shed more than a few tears. While there are definitely some exaggerations, I highly recommend reading Grapes of Wrath.
The Trask family saga, spanning three generations from the late 19th century through World War I. Stunning writing.
An insanely amazing novel with a jumble of plots that will keep you guessing more than it will thrill you and linger in your mind long after you've put the last page down.
Reading the book again did not diminish my appreciation for it. It ranks up there among the best books I've ever read.
If you're going to be depressed, you may as well curl up with a good book.The most heartbreaking book I read as a little child. It's still really tragic.
The novel has me torn. The writing style is quite conversational, which is a little tedious, but on the other hand, it's addictive in that you want to know what happens next.
Fantastic book on the consequences of male dominance and the subjugation of women. A beautiful story of love and friendship.
The Road is one of the saddest novels I've read, terrible and powerful. It's probably imprinted permanently in my brain.
