Read GWTW the book, must have liked it since I read it all. ;-) Years
ago. The movie was too long, always broken up over several nights, and I
guess I wasn't impressed, but some bits were funny.
TKAM was on the high school reading list of nasty, depressing works, along
with Catcher in the Rye. Not my ticket at all. Didn't like All Quiet on
the Western Front either.
But my real Struwwelpeter (after someone on this list who is permanently
traumatized by that work) is the story ... is it The Red Pony? some bloody
tragedy that happens to a cold. Really really horrid.
I want to see that Arthurian Tolkien poem though. Guess I better keep
likes her rose-colored glasses!
