Pollyanna

by Eleanor Hodgman Porter

This book is very inspirational. People may make a lot of jokes about this book but I wont. Pollyanna's "glad" game was a way to cope with depression and she went through a lot. It still has a message for us even today.

Oliver Twist

by Charles Dickens

This book is great. The musical doesn't do it justice. I do have one beef with it though. Why did the author make the villain a jew. It shows some anti-semitism because of it.

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.
