    I think it is funny that Johnny Tremain got on that list. My 6th grade class read that. Great book, though.

    A Separate Peace...I read that in 9th grade, I think. I'm pretty sure it had the guys who jumped off the branch of that tree and so on. Yeah, I didn't like it too much.

    Heart of Darkness! We read that this past year. That's one of the toughest books I've ever read. Sooo much description and detail. We also read Cry, The Beloved Country. That book was good, IMO.

    For summer reading, I have to read The Crucible and The Unvanquished for AP English. Then, I have to read Profiles in Courage for AP History. I've finished The Crucible. It was good...although it's kind of short...being a play and all.

    I've read a bit of Brave New World and am planning to read 1984 soon. Brave New World (the part I read anyway) was pretty good. It's about a utopian world of the future. I find most books about utopian societies fascinating.

    I think it to be the most horrible experience to read a play opposed to seeing one. Plays were meant to be seen, not read. I have no idea why they (teachers) torture us into reading them. I must admit that I find some amusement in the interpretation some give of them. Shakespeare is a common example. It is rather interesting to hear my fellow lower-classmen try to interpret his plays. Easier for some than others but most of those may have it all wrong, also.

    So, the best way to understand a play is to see it. It is much easier to comprehend that way. Plus, you don't have to hear the freshman butcher the writer too much!
