Many years ago, when I was a poor student, I used to buy cheap out-of-copyright classics from discount bookstores, and I used to buy them by weight, essentially, to make sure my money stretched as far as possible. I distinctly remember turning down the slender pamphlet that was Heart of Darkness
I read War and Peace
- excellent value - The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Three Musketeers
, etc, and I think Don Quixote
is the only one I still own.
They're all free ebooks nowadays. You kids don't know you're born.
I have tried a couple of times, and failed to get anywhere with. I loved Dune, but this just seems to overcomplicate it.
I also failed The Two Towers
at my first attempt, but managed it second time round. (I still think Fellowship is the best of the three.)
i liked the hobbitt and fellowship well enough but i really bogged down in the two towers.
