Maus is one of my most favourite books ever, I really like how the art highlights the differences between people.amanda said:i'm reading Maus by Art Spiegelman for my ethnic american lit class. it's a graphic novel about the holocaust written by the son of a survivor. it sounds kind of odd, but it's an incredibly powerful piece of art. the way he did it was genius.
James Frey and Dan Brown are both awesome!ayla said:Maus is one of my most favourite books ever, I really like how the art highlights the differences between people.
In the past 2 weeks, I've kind of been on a binge, I've just finished reading: A Million Little Pieces, Angels and Demons, Freakonomics, The Devil Wears Prada, Bourne Identity and Apologies to Thucydides. I'm also reading Polybius' Histories as well as Livy's Ad Urbe Condita for school. Oh I need a nerd face smiley !
I thought it was kind of like reading the equivalent of fast food in novel form, it was satisfying and tasty, but probably bad for you and you shouldn't indulge too much. I actually read that one in one sitting, sometimes it felt like it was just a big list of designer names and how much everything cost and how mean what's her face is. I kind of wonder how much of it is really Anna Wintour though !IntlSet said:Ayla, how did you like The Devil Wears Prada? I just sold mine on Half.com. I couldn't get through it, I thought it was so dull!
I'm reading a lot of text books for class but for free-time I'm re-reading Lolita.
