Or if you don't have time to read a whole book just read the best parts:
A Farewell To Arms, page 125
The Great Gatsby, page 7
Moby Dick, pages 483-484
Tales From Margaritaville, page xviii

The Great Gatsby,
Moby Dick,


Great Gatsby...excellent.
Moby Dick...snoozefest.

Just read The Picture of Dorian Gray. It was OK but nothing I can heartily recommend. This is what made Oscar Wilde an immortal? Jack London's The Sea Wolf, now that's some good readin'.

This is what made Oscar Wilde an immorta


nope.

his trial
his conversation
his lifestyle (yikes--what a word! sry)
and earnest, one of handful of comic masterpieces in our lang

there are no best parts to farewell; moby, on the other hand, is wall to wall a stunner

Paul Bowles The Sheltering Sky. If you're gonna read about 3 American expats having an adventure abroad far superior to The Sun Also Rises.

Hem? The Old Man and the Sea. Most "dialogue lovers" probably hate it. Had a lit professor who loved Hemmingway but didn't like that yet he could sit through shyte like Faulkner's Light in August with an erection. Some books are better listened to than read.

ss is great no doubt. i don't know what a dialogue lover is but old man is shit. light also makes me hard.

Pierre rules but requires ballsack from the reader. DONT BE WEAK!
