I think they should read world war 2 b/c all the punk teenagers dont know anything about the war . :evil: @Yanny:
If you had to make up a list of books that you thought that High Schools students should all read, what would they be?
For me, in no real order:
The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien
The Lost World - Michael Crichton
Prey - Michael Crichton (new book, really a great read)
1984 - Geoge Orwell
When True Night Falls - C.S. Friedman
The Lost World is, in my opinion, one of the best books ever written. They ruined the movie. Definately Crichton’s best book. But his new book, Prey, comes pretty damn close to The Lost World. I read it for hours straight, I just couldn’t put it down.
When True Night Falls is a newer fantasy book thats less famous than the others. Its really a great piece of writing, and there are 2 sequels.
The Hobbit is easily Tolkien’s best book, its beautifully written, incredibly detailed, and spawned a legion of fans and 3 great follow up books.
1984, one of my personal favorites.
