  • I loved those books and as a writer I have a respect for the past writers and leave it at that a time past and this book is a mini record of it in its own way but yes there are some books that I would never read again.

  • Ethan Frome. Seriously, what was that about, really?
    A Seperate Peace. That should have been titled "Teen Angst Falls Out of Tree".
