  • Only Character In The Book
    532 words
    I have just completed the classic nove Tortilla Flat by John Stienbeck. I must admit, this book was very boring to read. It's not very long, only about 200 pages, but it seemed like much more. I wasn't too interested in this book. I felt having to read this book was a chore. Although the book has its good moments, I think people looking for an exciting book should stay away from this novel. Tortilla Flat is one heck of a boring book, but it does have an original story. Most of this book revolves...

  • Captain Nemo And M Aronnax
    1,048 words
    By: Nita Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea Some time ago, I decided to read Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea, by Jules Verne. I figured that because it was so well known it must be an extremely interesting book. In addition, it was science fiction, the one area that I was always interested. My assumption was only partially correct, for I only was to a degree interested in the piece of writing. When Jules Verne was writing this book, he must have been reading some incredibly dull science...

  • Interesting Detail About Fishing

In "The Perfect Storm", Junger gives a lot of interesting detail about fishing yet there are a lot of useless facts that just don't keep the reader interested.
