It's pretty good...basically the sequel to Anthem. It's a kind of 1984-style society except it's even worse because man has lost almost all technology

I fucking love that book. I think I was Ocar Wilde in my past life. Not that I believe in past lives, but still, I so would be...

I was recently compared to Sibyll. Made me happy/disappointed in myself.

If Oscar Wilde were a female, I would fuck him. As it is, he was homosexual, and I would not.
I would however fuck you, If you were a bit older, as it is, you are not. Call me in a couple of years and we can pretend you are Oscar Wilde.

Marry me.
Vonnegut is fantastic and Slaughterhouse-5 is a must read for any literature fan, as is the Sirens Of Titan.
Bluebeard is also touching. Hell, you'll find yourself compelled to read all of his works just after one.

And don't forget classics like A Clockwork Orange and American Psycho. And what the hell, I'll throw Fight Club in there.

I have always wanted to read some Marquis de Sade, but if you know, it is rather hard to get a hold of his work. Alas, I ended up downloading the movie Salo instead.

But seriously guys, why has nobody mentioned Lolita? Nabokov's prose is beautiful regardless of it's content, and literally, I could read a book of his about anything. What I would kill to read Nabokov describe sidewalks or grass.

Besides those I have been meaning to get around to reading A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers and Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Foer.

Oh, and as a sidenote: Naked Lunch.

Of Mice and Men is an excellent short read. (My copy is 107 pages long.)
I'm also interested in reading The Grapes of Wrath since I saw the movie.

Well books aren't constrained by time and budgets. Hollywood tends to add extra flavor to most films.

I have read all of Vonnegut's stuff. I think I also mentioned A Clockwork Orange earlier...

Lolita is great, read it last year. I basically adore most of the books you mention here.

I want to suggest some Margaret Atwood if you're ever in the feminist mood, she's pretty good. She spoke at a college in Chicago a few months ago and I went...Amazing woman and writer.

On my shelf.

Catcher in the rye
The Great Gatsby
George Orwell 1984
George Orwell Homage to Catalonia- Awesome war novel, it's his account of his time in the Spanish revolution fighting with the the anarchists and communists against the fascists. Dude wasn't even Spanish he just thought it was the right thing to do. Badass.
George Orwell Animal Farm
Brave new world, Aldous Huxley
H.S.T. The rum diary- Good ole HST
Othello, Shakespeare, lawl- was a gift
Victor E. Frankl Man's search for meaning- This dude was(is?) a jew doctor who lived through the Holocaust and then started his own psychiatric theory afterwards that basically says, life is meaningless but get over it, haha.
A clock work orange, Burgess
The divine comedy
slaughterhouse five, Vonnegut- I thought it was very odd, half war novel have aliens are abducting the dude?
The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath- Great look into the mind of a person majorly depressed.
grapes of wrath, Steinbeck-Very good
3 part Steinbeck set, hardcover circa 1967: grapes of wrath, the winter of our discontent, short novels(tortilla flat,the red pony, of mice and men, the moon is down, cannery row, the pearl).
war and peace two volume hard cover circa 1938-huge

all good books. well the divine comedy is a bit dry and odd to read.

You, sir, just described one quarter of my collection.

All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren is worth reading.
