And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

This forum can be a scary place, 'cause we got lax rules: let's see your war face. Take a breath, and roll the dice, you might find out we're really nice.

It's interesting to see how huxley and orwell's idea of a dystopia differs.

The weird part is Huxley's is more plausible at this point.

I'm sure it'll be the way in all the world in a few more decades.

Erskine better get a Shanahammer.

Gervais is another defenseman that Tampa almost killed and the Flyers are resurrecting(see Carle and Mez).

He beat Hendricks, Gervais was a solid top 4 guy until that last year on Long Island and Tampa.

It feels weird to see these book recommendations, 'cause a few of them (mostly the ones Tuor's mentioned) are books that were required reading in my high school classes--especially for that one AP class I was in. o-o Same for some of the books Whatis mentioned reading.

Makes me a little nostalgic, I suppose.

Yeah, I skipped out on AP English and I went to a city school so the reading list was a little more leaned into some African American writings.

Of the books I suggested I only read one of them in highschool. The rest were on my time or in college

Most of what I read, I've read on my own either through buying books, borrowing from friends or my sister's high school readings.

@Whatis: Huh, I see. o3o What sort of books were they?

@Tuor: Really? It's kinda funny, though it makes sense, given that AP classes were supposed to prep you for college and all. I dunno if I'll end up having to re-read certain books, lol.

Well thinking about it and talking with a few friends Black Like Me, Native Son, Black Boy, Raisin in the Sun, Their Eyes Were Watching God. The more traditional stuff was Animal Farm, The Pearl, A Separate Peace, The Time Machine, The Metamorphosis. And I'm sure there was another half dozen individual books, a few dozen short stories, a few dozen poems and 3 or 4 Shakespeare plays.

Haha, didn't read any of those either. Geez, what the hell. I can barely remember what books we did read. I remember The Chrysalids, and Brave New World. Other than that I can't recall. Oh, read The Outsiders.
