I enjoyed all the books except Tess. Tess stunk. But I have found that pretty much everything Thomas Hardy wrote was awful.
I also read O Pioneers, by Willa Cather, and it was ok.
But I never could finish Ulysses. It was just too much. It was too.... abstract (?) for me, I guess. I replaced it with A Death in the Family, which was a good book.
I enjoyed Dune and Cranford the most. Dune rocked. Cranford is just my style :) I didn't exactly "enjoy" Brave New World, but did enjoy the political perspective it gave me.Catch 22 was good, it reminded me of M*A*S*H and made me laugh, and think! Catcher in the Rye was kinda silly to me, but you know, I am old.. :-p I also really enjoyed Life of Pi and The Book Thief. The Book Thief especially. It was an eye opener. I guess I never tried to put myself in the place of anyone who wasn't a Jew under the Nazi regime... Interesting perspective there.
