Yeah, another “best/worst/favorite” type of thread. Sorry. The thread about “sucks to your assmar” got me thinking about depressing books. Not necessarily good or bad books, but just depressing. Three that come to mind are:
- “Ethan Frome”
- “Lord Of The Flies”
- “Of Mice And Men”
I think Ethan Frome is by far the winner here. How they can make highschool kids read this in school (like I did) is mind boggling. Excellent, excellent book, but it just does not let up. What do you all think?
