A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

@frenchee, I've noted both of those, but I don't know if I want to spend any more time on John Irving. The first book I read by him was In One Person. He reuses some of the same scenes that appear in Garp (for example, a lecturer at the boarding school slipping on ice), and I don't know that I want to see them again. And Again. There are so many books out there!

I adored Jane Eyre as a teenager. Read it first at 13 and then reread and reread. When I reread it in my early 30s I had a completely different experience and probably won't reread it again. I loved all the gothicism as a teen, but after a break of a few decades it just became trite. On the same note, The Phantom Tollbooth was a terrible disappointment as an adult!

"Lord of the Rings" trilogy -- interminable, w/way too much fluff. Tolkien had the right length w/"Hobbit" then over-indulged severely. A rare case where the movies were better than the book(s) because they had to edit out heaps of stupid pointless waffle.

And while I am an atheist and believe in objective reality, Rand took a big crap on social engineering and forgot the most important premise: The world is what we make of it. Yes, we can not regulate and let things spin the way they will, which is usually toward greed and division, or we can create something more palatable for all.

Rand had some brilliant passages, and can really write a page turner (after all , her favorite author was....Mickey Spillane!)....but as a person, she was a turd. Like Salvador Dali whose work I like, but as a person despise...strongly....I look around at semi-deserted small town downtowns and it strongly reminds me of Rand scenarios....unlike in Poland where 500 year old downtowns will be re-utilized for anything like cell phone stores and cafes...unlike our strip mall mentality.....rant off...

Would it be cheating to get the Cliff's Notes text for all these books? I'm a busy guy.

i wasn't sure at first but yes, i like that rendition. i don't know much Abbey Lincoln and it's a whole different vibe than the original.
...but,yes.

Incidentally, all, thanks for understanding re: my not liking "Dunces." I mentioned this on FB after my attempt, to people I theoretically know in the flesh, and got dogpiled like I'd slandered everyone's firstborn. Was thus hesitant to mention it here. Like most things in life, if it's not for me, it's for someone else, for sure! (Literally: I ended up mailing my copy to one of the FB folks who didn't jump down my throat b/c she said it was her favorite book and was lacking a copy.)

I think we confuse writing with reading sometimes. Randall Jarell? He said (paraphrased) "I loved Alice in Wonderland. It's the best thing I ever wrote".

@Trouble: Definitely a good one if you're composing your 2016 reading list.
Current reading: Carrie Brownstein's bio; also have a mighty pile of new books via Amazon. 2016 will be a good reading year.

that looks interesting.(Trouble @11:42) it's now on my list.
...there are several in front of it; and "autumn of the patriarch" is very slow-going.

i just realised "confederacy of dunces" is also on my list - recommended to me when i was up against a clan of power hungry old gardeners trying to kick me out of the community garden!
