Kids these days
Posted 11 January 2008 - 11:55 PM
I mainly like to read sci-fi, fantasy, and historical books. Like others here, I enjoy books from the ninteenth and early twentieth century, lol. Some of my favourite authors are:
-H. G. Wells
As for specific books, I like:
-The Red Badge of Courage
-I Am Legend
-The Da Vinci Code
-The Halo novels. Not good exactly for literature, but if you play the games (campaign, mostly (not you stupid 12-year olds butchering the English language on Live)) I'm sure you'd like the books.
I've gotta say, though, some of the books they 'force' you to read in school are alright - I read "Animal Farm" for an assignment, and that sent me into "1984", and later, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Lost World."
I also like the Sherlock Holmes' short stories.

On the subject of kids being incredibly ignorant and stupid, Elvenfury knows about wrestling (Guess he must be about 12ish then?) but doesn't know who David Bowie is. This means he's never heard Life on Mars, Space Oddity or anything else. He'll be telling me next he doesn't know who the Stones or Pink Floyd are next.
