Hamlet it is supposed to be the best thing ever in the English language.  I've got to get that collection.  Hopefully, they have a part 2 with Dracula and Frankenstein and some poems from the Romantic era.

"Supposed to be"? You haven't read it?


      I've read it.  My college professor said it was.  In retrospect, it is emo though, but still a good read.

I agree about Jules Verne, but I'm trying to imagine the mindset that would make any Robert Louis Stevenson book boring, much less that one.

I cannot! The mindset required escapes me!

To be fair, I was young (I think I was 12) and I had recently finished the amazing Around the World in Eighty Days, that may have been some influence.

Still, since so many years have passed, I don't remember exactly why I didn't like it, only that when I finished it I was very disappointed with the book and specially with the ending, and that it was boring for me and I forced myself to finish it

You might consider going back again.

Jules Verne isn't a fair measuring stick of literary awesomeness. He is, in a phrase, entirely too awesome.

Jane Eyre should be on the list eventually, if not #1. Best book on the list.

Please, PLEASE do NOT feed the trolls.

I like to jump around, and would lead a fairly serene and aimless existence if it weren't for my friends always getting into trouble. I love to help out, even when it puts me at risk. I seem to make friends with people who just can't stay out of trouble.

Sherlock Holmes is good. I've read almost all Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I've read all Shakespeare too. Favorites are Macbeth and Taming. Alice in Wonderland is also a nice quick read.

Macbeth is much better than Hamlet imo. It isn't about some bellyachin' prince. I also prefer Marlowe's Dr. Faustus and Goethe's Faust. H. P. Lovecraft's stories, Edgar Allen Poe's The Masque of the Red Death, and Stephen King's It.  I am all for books coming to the DS.

It's indeed a dissapointment that there's no Jules Verne. If it were me, I'd probably start with Sir Walter Scott's stuff, specifically Rob Roy.

You are a gentleman and a scholar.

Hey, there is a lot of good stuff there. Screw that casual label. I know what I am going to buy next.
