Re: Lord of the Flies

I liked the the book at school, mainly coz i got an 'A' for it. It was very clever that he used children as the basis for the story - everybody 'knows' that children will immediately revert to a more basic level of animal mentality as soon as an authoritive is removed. The book would not have been t...

Re: Recommend a book

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke, not many people seem to have read this but i think it is well worth it. Oh, and The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón - This booked made me realise that fantasy isn't the only genre worth reading, although i am yet to find a non fantasy book t...

Re: Discworld for English class

I'm a bit obsessed with his highness Terry Pratchett and i aslon studied english lit - Why did you choose him???? I think that the truth may be your best bet as it does involve some (albeit very loosley) historical basis and can be analysed as 'gross generalisations of racial stereotypes'! Also Thud...

I can't believe it took two pages to say this!



I was little shocked myself at the lack of support for the master of fantasy. THe first 3 were the best but you cant beat the original legends!

Re: Tea Snobbery

Aye, I jest. But still, its fairly true that most people drink proper tea - milk, one sugar, 12 cups a day. Plus, flavoured teas are nasty concoctions. They're not tea , merely flavoured hot water with vague tea extract additives. Proper tea is for REAL men. Don' forget in the true working class te...

Re: New Year's Resolutions?

I thank you for putting thatinto perspective for me, it's been a long day and i really didn't want to think too hard! Not a real paradox. New Year's Resolutions are things that you will do for the new year. Deciding not to make a resolution doesn't contradict itself, because that's something you're ...

Re: Tea Snobbery

Being English, i automatically qualify as a tea expert (see the liscenced teas act of 1722) and it has to be said that black tea is rocking! PGtips for preference but will stoop to tetley if the pg is unavailable!

Re: New Year's Resolutions?

I thought that seeing as though i always break them, that i wasn't going to make any new year's resolutions. But then i thought, by making that decision, i have inadvertently turned my (now obvoiusly morose) comment into a resolution itself!! What a connumdrum i face trying to justify that to myself...

Re: Alone on New Year's Eve

You could always just stare at the screen, not really seeing what's on it because you're too busy wondering 'how can i be so lonely that i have nowhere to go on new year's eve', slowing making your way through the entire freezer's supplies, not even bothering to cook it. Well that's what i'll be doi...
