    Choose your fiction

    There seem to be several fiction books around these parts. Pick which one you ascribe to. (Don't try to take a hybrid or you will be disqualified.)

    1. The Grapes of Wrath - John Steinbeck

     

    2. To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee

     

    3. Moby Dick - Herman Melville

     

    4. The Brothers Karamazov - Fyodor Dostoyevsky

     

    I'm in #2, obviously.

    Okay, if you HAD to pick one of these, understanding that your actual view might be a combination or somehow not exactly one of the above, what would you choose?

    This is getting out of hand!!! I now have to choose within a genre. I  choose Science Fiction! The Dune series... the movie sucked but the books were well worth the read.

    Re: Choose your fiction

    If I have to choose a fiction on a Pats forum, I would think the choices would be along the lines of

    1.  TB sucks, that's why we don't win SBs anymore

    2.  BB sucks, that's why we don't win SBs anymore

    3.  WW is the reason we lost 42 & 46

    4.  Spygate was real, and since Karma is a B, that's why we don't win SBs anymore.

    I choose #3 but only because I cut out the middle of that book and hide my weed there.

    #4, but I'd substitute Crime and Punishment (the greatest work of fiction of all time).

    As does To Kill a Mockingbird. I don't think I ever finished The Brothers Karamazov. We had a personal reading class in high school where you had to read so many books every quarter. That book was counted for as many books as you needed for the whole quarter. I'm thinking one book, no problem!! Ha! Only time I got a D in school, my father taught there...

    Re: Choose your fiction

    I'll go with Steinbeck of the four. Must admit I have never really had the patience for the Russian writers.

    But those are heavyweights. With small kids in the house, I mostly only have time for lighter stuff. I like George R.R. Martin, Ken Follet, Stephen Kings Dark Tower series. Should any of you fall upon books by a Jussi Adler Olsen I'll recommend them. He writes thrillers. Also Swedish author Jan Guillou is pretty decent, and for those of you with kids Astrid Lindgren is a must.

    Song of Ice and Fire is too hip for me to try out, but everyone tells me I am missing out.

    And you are. I like how huge it is, the depth of characters, the willingness to kill off important figures, the rawness of it.

    All good books, if I had to choose I would go with to kill a mocking bird. I love Steinbeck but thought to kill a mockingbird was great. Favorite football book was Friday night lights, loved it
