    I managed to get through about 10 pages of Beloved. It was horrible.

    The Bluest Eye - just awful. I don't even have blue eyes.

    I enjoyed The Lord of the Rings and the Iliad and the Odyssey.

    I also really like Hunter Thompson.

    I agree. I didn't much like the movie.

    I thought the same thing.

    I would switch that with Beowulf. I might also throw in Don Quixote.

    I know I'll probably get killed by Ian for this but... Atlas Shrugged.

    I would imagine it's a fantastic book, but I cannot seem to even finish Rand's, "The Fountainhead"...and Atlas is twice as long. I think something like 1200 pages...est. I just don't ever think I'll get to it until I'm retired.

    Beowulf is quite a bit more stirring in the original, also, spookier. :D

    Seamus Heaney's translation is very good.

    I don't care what language it's in...the damn thing sucked!!! Although apparently I was the only one in senior lit that preferred more of Shakespeare's sonnets. Or at least something uplifting like Emily Dickinson.

    I only read Anthem. That was enough for me.
