Of Human Bondage

by W. Somerset Maugham

I found this book very interesting. A very adult book for its time. it doesn't pull punches.

Notes From The Underground

by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

I found this book to be a boar. The ravings of a lonely, pompous man who is totally immature.

Vanity Fair

by William Makepeace Thackeray

I found this satire with so much tragedy it wasn't funny. It shows a lot of hypocrisy in their society and it also reflects ours in some ways.

Ulysses

by James Joyce

This book can only be read by an english major in Itish literature. I found it totally unreadable to me. I read books for plot, not for fancy literature tricks. I only recommend this if you are doing a term paper for your masters or Phd.
