I haven't read any of these.



I couldn't read Where the Red Fern Grows again if I tried. I know what happens, and I would just start bawling sooner! It's a lot like watching The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I've seen that movie (and read the book) many times, but I just start crying earlier and earlier because I know what happens to Aslan. It's pathetic.

Here's mine:


Aw, I have not read Where the Red Fern Grows since the early 80s! I need to read that one again, it was so wonderful. My answers: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/01/booking-through-thursday-complicated.html


I enjoy complicated plots and multiple layers of meanings, but they are not necessary for me to like a book. It all depends whether I resonate with the story.

A Fine Balance is on my list--I need a little push to tackle that monster. :)

A Fine Balance is my favourite book! I can't believe I forgot to mention it! I love A Fine Balance more for the complexity of the plot and it's insight into Indian life than the ending, but I was surprised by it - and very sad. Great choice!
