+1. If you (the parent) have not instilled in your child a love of reading loooong before his high school Lit teacher assigns him to read "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man", then he (the child) is already screwed. And if you have done your job and taught him the joys of reading, both for knowledge and pleasure, then this experience won't ruin him.
