So what's the point of this post? I don't know. I know so many people love classics and I'm wondering if maybe I just haven't read the right one. Maybe someone could recommend me a classic that I'd like? So I thought I'd make a list of classics I've liked and classics I didn't like. Some I've only watched the movie of, but I didn't like the general storyline.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
The Little Princess
The Arabian Nights
Lord of the Flies
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
A Wizard of Earthsea
Romeo and Juliet*
The Taming of the Shrew*
*love the language but the plot doesn't interest me
I really can't stand too much description. I will skip over it no matter how good the story is- it was one of the reasons I couldn't read the His Dark Materials series. I also am not interested in pure romances- I want more action than that. I'm looking for an interesting, fast paced read that is entertaining. I personally don't care how literary a book is if it doesn't entertain me.
I'm really interested in seeing your recommendations. :)
