    I have to read this book for my english class called "Reinventing Argentina", or something like that. I was wondering if anyone has heard of it and if it is any good.

    Frankenstein is boring as shit and I have never managed to like Huckleberry Finn, though I like every piece of prose I've ever read by Mark Twain (so, maybe two or three pieces).

    I'm rereading the Wheel of Time Series right now. Currently on book 4. I'm also reading The Handmaid's Tale, since I gave it a miss in favor of Cat's Cradle in high school, and H.G. Wells' The Invisible Man.

    I found out a few days ago that I am going to have to reread Heart of Darkness. I shudder.

    I'm almost done reading Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Kind of disappointed it wasn't as funny as I thought it would be. It was more put-a-smirk-on-your-face-amusing than laugh out loud funny, but it still definitely had its moments where it made me laugh in public making me look crazy. Good stuff.

    I'm going to read Anansi Boys next. I read the preview on the back of American Gods and it was amazing. I hear it's supposed to be better than American Gods too.

    That's exactly how I felt when I read my first Terry Pratchett book.

    I'm still kind of interested in reading some of his Discworld novels. Could anyone recommend any or should I read them in order?

    I can do it because I'm not picky.

    I must buy that soon...although I'm preparing myself to be disappointed for some reason.

    Read it in two days. I mainly enjoy them because they are just fun and utter nonsense reading. Diving into a novel like that is freeing after reading textbooks, dry history tomes, and high school essays.

    PS: I had it figured out after the first 150 pages or so.
