I did my ISU on The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb. Even though it is really long, it's worth it. Such an awesome book!

I did it on Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham. Long book, 600 pages. But one of the best I've ever read.

First we read A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf. (worst book ever..)
And then we read Zorba the Greek at home while reading Three Sisters by Chekhov in class.
Now we're reading Fifth Business at home while reading Hamlet in class.
And then we're going to read Emma by Jane Austen and The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood.

I think Zorba the Greek is pretty good and Fifth Business which I'm reading right now is not that bad either.

It's actually kind of funny when you get over how long all the conversations(and sentences!) are

I sent you an inbox but here it is:

"Things Fall Apart" by Chinua Achebe and "Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad.
They both deal with the African colonization in the 19th-20th century.

Things Fall Apart is written from an African's point of view, while Heart of Darkness from a white man's.

I was going to suggest Lord of the Flies and Heart of Darkness to him, but he's probably already read the former in school.

I'm doing The Reader by Bernhard Schlink for my ISU :) usually we're supposed to pick two books but because I'm in AP English we read so much already that our teacher decided to cut us some slack and only make us read one book :P

Comparing Sense & Sensibility and Pride & Prejudice.
I loved Pride & Prejudice, really good read.
Sense & Sensibility took me forever, too slow for me, and made me want to tear my hair out... but in a loving way. I still enjoyed it!
