Sense and Sensibility


Austen's style is different from the small bit of Bronte (excuse the lack of accent, I don't plan on searching for it at the moment) I've read. At once both easier to read, due to terms used, and more difficult, due to similar names or long meandering phrases.

*Sigh*. I know.

^ Good luck with that one. We're in a similar boat. [I half wanted to sod off the original and just read the one there with the Seamonsters and all, but I'll have to suck it up and read for sake of understanding original sources; it's not all that bad, S&S, it's just, not as fun as Dickens')

I have read The Red Badge of Courage. It isn't really my thing. I am reading Dracula by ? Stoker...again.

I found it to be decent. The time frame it has is pretty short, and I felt it didn't really delve into the "big things" as most other war stories, and ended somewhat strangely, but it did describe things well. It was okay.

*Bram Stoker. I've been putting off reading that, as well as at least twenty or so other classics, simply because of the length. What can I say, I'm not a fan of length.

Now, to both act contrary and stand as fact of that statement, I submit that currently I'm only reading several graphic novels/manga and the complete collection of stories of Winnie-the-Pooh. Besides that, nothing this time.

I love reading long books. The longer it is, the more I want to read it!

It is included in a series about Vampirates. (I understand it sounds childish, but let me reassure you, it has a great plot)

I am now reading "To Kill a Mockingbird."

Ah, I was recently going to try and listen to an audiobook of that (for want of different media). Unfortunately I only got to the first chapter or so and then was too busy and ran out of time and had to return it. I would like to pick it back up, one day, though. The CD sounded cool too because the narrator actually sounded like a beat poet. :]
