The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

by Robert Louis Stevenson

Never mind the fanciful movies. This is a story of the dangers of drug abuse. I've seen similar reactions in my friends who use hard drugs. an early warning back in the 1800s.

The Portrait of a Lady, vol 1

by Henry James

ZZZZZZZ. A very boring book with no remarkable action either emotional or physical. It reminds me of a very boring American going through Europe movie from the 60s.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

by Washington Irving

Very interesting book but too short for my tastes. The cartoons leave much to be desired and the book has more detail on the character and his interactions with the people of Sleepy Hollow. The language for the period is hard to read.

The Last of the Mohicans

by James Fenimore Cooper

This book was a blow by blow book of adventure. I really liked it. It is a great book. No movie does it justice. I recommend it to anyone
