Re-reading Fahrenheit 451. Honestly one of my favorite books and one of the few I could sit through in high school. After that, I'm going to start reading The Institute by Stephen King
I just started Dune and I am loving it! At first I was sooo confused but after awhile I was like "oh this makes sense!" I am so excited for the movie to come out this year and even found the OG one w/ Patrick Stewart in it.I just finished Dune by Frank Herbert (my first time reading science fiction! awesome, highly recommended) and I'm going in a completely different direction by reading The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith.
The premise is definitely intriguing, though I was a little disappointed it was a zombie apocalypse.Hollow Kingdom. It’s about a crow and a dog during the human apocalypse.
Tbh I’m a bit disappointed in it? I really enjoy the premise but my problem is it’s written like it’s just trying to show you just how adult it is (ie constant sexual references, cussing, gross out, etc). And I’m someone who cusses like a sailor and doesn’t usually get bothered by these things, but it just feels so forced and edgy. I’m about in the middle and luckily it’s gotten better with this problem. I bet it works for others but for me, it’s just a little too “this is an ADULT book!!”
I did an essay on it wayyy back in November. It was only a smol one - 750 words, about how the entire thing is an allegory for the ongoing British Civil War (Cromwell = Satan, King Charles Stuart I = God).Paradise Lost is good stuff.
I was unaware of the allegory, so you just taught me something.I did an essay on it wayyy back in November. It was only a smol one - 750 words, about how the entire thing is an allegory for the ongoing British Civil War (Cromwell = Satan, King Charles Stuart I = God).
Got a B+, my highest grade at that point. I thought it was kind of a shit essay tbh lmao
