Red Queen series, first one I could think of that I read recently
Lolita. The prose is gorgeous, and Nabokov wrote it in English, which is VERY impressive!
The subject matter is, er, not for everyone…
I suspect that most people who say they “do not like” Lolita have never read it. I trust you know that Nabokov wrote several novels in English, including Ada, Transparent Things, Look at the Harlequins! and several others. Lolita, though–that’s probably his best book.
I’m actually not super familiar with Nabokov – I read Invitation to a Beheading in school (also very good, but very different) and then decided to try out Lolita. I started reading Ada but couldn’t get into it (which honestly may have been my own fleeting thoughts more than anything).
@Ted No, “Ada” is _hard._ It takes place in an alternate universe, with utterly different history and technology. Probably the most difficult of his novels to read.
Oh wow! It sounds interesting… maybe I’ll have to put that on my [absurdly long at this point] list.
I read an interesting book, “Reading Lolita in Tehran”, about a group of women in a repressed society reading the book and discussing it.
Book 1 of the Elsker Saga; my friends couldn’t get into it but I loved it xD . Some people say they didn’t like ACOTAR or it’s their least favourite in the series but, to me, it’s the best so far.
I love wuthering heights…!
Me too. I think it’s a love/hate kind of book.
One of my favorites!
@Ella mine too!
@Stacey have you read Valley of the Dolls???
@Ella no.. But that’s a good one I heared.maybe i will run to the library tonight!:)
@Stacey it’s a great read!!!!
The Girl on the Train or The Catcher in the rye
The catcher in the rye is the absolute best…!
Indeed? I though everyone liked Catcher.
@Clay how is that possible? There’s lots of people who don’t
I think the book is banned some places too…
Of Mice and Men and Catcher and the Rye.
Girl on the Train
Lord of the rings
Go set a watchman.
The English Patient
I really battled with this book Frannie, I need to try it again sometime.
War and Peace
Queen of Shadows
