    The Crucible counts even thought it's a play. Right? Because that book was pretty wicked. One of my fave bands spawned from that (Abigail Williams).

    Also.
    A Raisin In The Sun. Loved that.

    Oh my God! Did you see the movie with *ggggrrrrrllllll* (cat call) Sydney Portie? It's so good!

    I think plays count as classic literature: ie: Shakespeare, some Wilde, Miller.

    Speaking of good Wilde, if you get a chance, you should check out The Picture of Dorian Grey. It's really awesome. I love the transformation of the main character, and I have to say the artists is my personal favorite. It's Wilde, so it's kinda dark comedy at times, but just really good.

    What's the Crucible about? I haven't read it or looked into it much.

    The Crucible if I remember is about the Salem witch trials.

    Recently I read 'The Great Gatsby'. It's really a wonderful book and Gatsby is an utterly tragic character. I only have one problem with it and that is that Fitzgerald's writing style doesn't really appeal to me because it's far too simple.

    ^ Gatsby was a pretty cool book, you're right. I didn't mind Fitz's writing style that much, though; it was a welcome change from the other books of the era, which seem to go on for ages about trivialities.

    Haha, so true. Book ended with a bang; that's for sure.

    Les Miserables would've been my favorite had the author not rambled. I think he dedicated several chapters to the Napoleonic war and an entire one to the Parisian sewers when they barely entered the plot. Typically French writing, hah. Annd I'll admit I liked Pride and Prejudice.

    Heh, wish I could produce the play and add a surprise ending. Wouldn't it be awesome if Bobo came in during the final scene after everyone left?

    For example:
    [Cast leaves stage. Curtains close.]

    [Curtains open.]

    Bobo: Ugh. Blew a hole in my tires and took forever to get back here. Lemme tell you Waltuh, it was...

    [Bobo pauses to look around at the empty stage]

    Bobo: Hello?

    [Curtains close]

    I think I read half of that. In English, of course.
