J.F. Cooper is truly awful shyte. But, possibly the worst "classic" ever written is Dracula by Bram Stoker. Talk about destroying a cool story with horrible plotting and writing. Yeech.

Yeah, but I still have the 350-eater IT175! It's pretty dated though. It only eats the "new improved" 250cc offroad racing 4 strokes now.

I believe to this day that those reading lists were invented by evil people whose true intentions were to made reading as painful a process as possible.



At least my sophomore English teacher let us read stuff like Fahrenheit 451. But trying to force young readers (many of whom aren't that well prepared) to read Cooper or Melville is just plain cruel.

Language was amazingly different a century ago. And, having writers paid by the word, in the 19th century, sure didnÂ’t help things. Even, considering that, some of the stuff was pretty awful. Sometimes itÂ’s likeÂ…Get to the Damn point, already! Dumas and Sabatini are good, if you like Swashbucklers. Personally, ****ens is the only one who ever lived up to his reputation.



Hey, something just popped into my head.

Does anyone remember the Marty Feldman skit, The Beast in the Basket? And, if so, where I might be able to get it.

I keep ordering a Socrates Spritzer, and she hasnÂ’t come across with the Hemlock yet.
