I had to reread Huckleberry Finn for a college literature class. I've always loved that book. Guess I'm one of the few. I also enjoyed Tom Sawyer; I really am a fan of Mark Twain's writing.
It's funny but I really don't remember many of my assigned books in school. I was a rebel, so I never read any of them, just bluffed my way through. That's a shame, really. I hurt no one but myself. The really weird thing is that I read constantly, and have since my mother taught me to read.
Lucy, Wuthering Heights was one of my favorites. I don't mind the odd sad ending; I enjoy a good cry now and then.
Animal Farm, Brave New World and 1984 were all excellent. I still think about all three. My son bought me an animated movie version of Animal Farm for my birthday one year. I need to drag it out and watch it again.
