I have never read TGG. Is it really good? I considered reading it next year in my AP English Lit. class, but I decided not to since another one of F. Scott Fitzgerald's stories left me with a bad impression. I know it's dumb to not read any more of an author's works because you didn't like one story, but it was boring and confusing. Someone please tell me TGG is GOOD because I really want to read it and have another back up in case one of the books I've chosen to read gets taken by someone else.
It is a way to demystify those subjects
Mathematics is always present in the solution of enigmas, tactics and decision making in epic battles and during the investigation of a mystery.
I d like to invite you to read some page:

Anyway, I'm sorry that our little community has gone a bit dead. We're all so busy, and trying to find one book to read a month when all of us have so many commitments is very difficult. How about, for now, each of us discuss what we are reading and if anyone else has anything to say about it, we can discuss it? I think that'll help to get us going and more active for now as we all get ready for life to take us wherever it's planning.
Anyone read anything good lately they want to talk about? Great Gatsby or other?
( A few thoughts behind the cut...Collapse )
I'm going to try to read a bit more tonight, at least get through Chapter 2. :) I did a bunch of research to see if I could find some discussion questions, but I couldn't find any!
Looks like I'll be back at Borders tomorrow. I really wish there was a used book store near here.
( Just a few...Collapse )
These are more essay topics, but they may spark more discussion! (Also from Sparknotes)
( Might be interesting...Collapse )
I know I won't be getting the book until next weekend, as I am out of money until then and I want to make a trip to my favorite used book super store.
