    hehe it's kinda obvious though! I wondered about how young kids can read that kind of english. I didn't know some words, something that never happens to me... and I read english books a lot!

    I hate how the books end though. The end of the last book.

    Terre Des Hommes by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I have to read that for my French course.

    I read it in Hebrew and the translation was fairly simple as I recall. Not sure if I read any really complicated English books at all in terms of unknown language. Maybe Joyce and Dickens? Not even. I find the language in Victorian-era books beautiful but nevertheless not overly complicated for the average reader. But compare Russian novels from a mere century ago to what it is today... what a striking difference. And the old cyrilic alphabet only makes matters worse. Not that you would know, but just take my word on it. I read the travels of Gulliver (all of them) in the "old Russian" (the book was printed in USA in the 50s by people who wouldn't recognise the changes to the alphabet the 1917 revolution brought) and I always kept the impression like I was reading fucking Ukrainian or something. I wonder how Jonathan Swift stories are its original format though... hmmm...

    If I was going to read it in the revisionist-history "chronological" order, I might as well start watching Star Wars with The Phanton Menace. *snicker*

    Default everything in our behaviour is connected to sexuality in one way or another - freud

    Sigmund Freud - The Interpretation Of Dreams , I´m not sure if that`s the name of the book in english but anyway. Funny book.. Anyone seen dreams lately? hahahaha...
    Within 6 years I`ll graduate psychology as my major.
    Freud self had some sort of a complex, as far as I´m concerned.

    If I make it that far. The first 2 were underwhelming. They started off with great ideas, but ran out of steam 3/4 of the way through. Still. they're interesting enough for me to give Dawn Treader a whirl.

    This is what happens when you're a functioning illiterate until you're 20, you read things with a mind that's too old.
