I don't know, if a lot of people want to have this book in a Book Club, I have no objections. Legolas Send a noteboard - 24/05/2011 07:01:38 PM
I would bet that many Americans at least haven't read it in years and would find reading it now to be a different experience (an interesting point of discussion in itself). And from what I remember of the book clubs, people wouldn't have to read it again to participate if they didn't choose to.

There are tons of books that are more in need of attention and encouraging people to read them, is all.

Let me ask the politically incorrect questions, since no one else has. - 24/05/2011 03:14:50 AM 1937 Views

Calpurnia is a stereotype too. - 24/05/2011 11:54:26 PM 1751 Views
The difference, at least in my recollection, is that Calpurnia is well-educated. - 25/05/2011 08:09:58 PM 1686 Views
