It's a superb book especially if you look deeper into the storyline. I guess it provides an "idiot's guide" type thing of the Russian Revolution. Really handy I found when gaining background knowledge. Saying that it's been about 10 years since I read it.

Sounds very interesting. I wish I had time to read all the books I want to!


Has anyone read 1984? I have to read it for my Brit Lit class.

Yeah well worth a read especially if you are interested in the Russian Rev.

1984? Yeah that takes me back a while though. I've read quite a number of Orwell's novels. In 1984 it seemed to me that Winston couldn't help himself going against his earlier ideals and principles and in the end simply couldn't help submitting to the very party he once hated. Quite a deep book but quite easy to understand.

Yeah it is really political - sort of a totalitarian take but at the back of your mind you can feel Orwell bashing Communism again

Romeo and Juliet...freshman English class is coming back to me.
Yeah, I read both of these as a freshman in high school....so long ago.

These days, they have the sophomores read Animal Farm...and if it's an honors class, they have them read it and 1984 as part of a large unit.

If you like this kind of book I can highly recommend you Twilight from Stephenie Meyer

In the tradition of Anne Rice and YA titles such as Annette Curtis Klause's The Silver Kiss (1999) comes this heady romance that intertwines Bella Swan's life with that of Edward, an alluring and tormented vampire. Bella's life changes when she moves to perpetually rain-soaked Forks, Washington. She is instantly drawn to a fellow student, Edward Cullen, beautiful beyond belief and angrily aloof. Bella senses there is more behind Edward's hostility, and in a plot that slowly and frighteningly unfolds, she learns that Edward and his family are vampires--though they do not hunt humans. Yet Edward cannot promise that his powerful attraction to Bella won't put in her in danger, or worse. Recklessly in love, Bella wants only to be with Edward, but when a vicious, blood-lusting predator complicates her world, Bella's peril is brutally revealed.

Yep, read it a couple of months back . I thought it was great, but some people may not like it as much as Twilight, maybe because of the decreasing references to the vampires in general, and Edward.
