I might read Huck Finn then, thanks.
I've read two chapters in Scarlet Letter and already I'm bored. Nothing really happens. Hawthorne is being descriptive, but it's like he's not describing anything....can't really explain it. Hope it gets better, though.

Huck Finn is excellent. Better than Tom Sawyer.

Finally finished Scarlet Letter. It took much longer than it should have.
Tomorrow I'll begin Fathers and Sons by Turgenev, which I'm looking forward to and hope it's a good read.
I'm also on and off with Waldan and Leaves of Grass - Whitman is becoming my favorite poet.

I don't understand why everyone hates the Scarlet Letter. I didn't think it was that bad. I thought it was pretty engaging compared to other high school reading. On the other hand, I thought To Kill a Mockingbird was boring as hell. Whatever. I don't generally like Americana at all. Scarlet Letter seemed to have a relatively "exotic" feel to it that kept me from classifying it as such, I guess.

I loved Scarlet Letter, it's just so DARK. I think it makes a difference if you are forced to study a book at school, I read Scarlet letter through choice.

I agree. And in whole pages nothing seemed to happen. I would find myself skipping a whole page and Hawthorne would still be describing the same scene or person - not just that, but hte same feeling the person was having. I found that pretty irritating. It wasn't complete shit, though.
To Kill a Mockingbird was my least favorite book school's required so far. I might have been, though, that at the time the book was assigned, I was reading the Brother's Karamazov, and I just found TKAMB dull in comparisn.
