Looking at reviews and stuff, I have heard that the book is better than the film...

hi all,


i thought i'd create a discussion thread for oxbridge students, grads and applicants on what non-course-related books we all read (literature/factual/history/travel etc etc)... either for enjoyment or self torture[1].


i've just finished reading Gregory Maguire's Wicked: the life and times of the wicked witch of the west. I will never be able to watch The wizard of Oz in the same way again: such a rich and vibrant history and political system, it has completely turned the Oz story on its head, and was very challenging in places in terms of making teh reader question their own sense of what constitutes "evil". anyone else read it?


so, what you all reading? or what have you read?


Pixie-pie.






[1] I am currently reading House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. i'm only on page 26 and that book just made me
scream out loud
and start pacing
with skin crawling... awesome book, but
CREEPY AS F***.

I'm about to read The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot :woo: by about to-my bookmark is in it...

I'm also reading some books which I suppose are course related but they're more for personal interest such as ''Fifty Major Thinkers in Education''. Exciting I know!!

Right now I'm rereading War and Peace. Building up to The Faerie Queene which, unfortunately, is a compulsory read for me.

Good luck, two absolute beasts there. I want to read The Faerie Queen too as I so enjoyed Spenser's Amoretti sonnets and The Shepherde's Calendar!

At the moment I'm torn between reading All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy or The French Lieutenant's Woman by John Fowles. Need to flip a coin to see who goes first.

Heh, thanks. :^_^: I've read War and Peace before so it shouldn't be too much like hard work. I'm afraid I'm not much of a Spenser fan, though!

All the Pretty Horses is awesome.

I'm currently reading The Three Musketeers and The Subterranean Railway (non-fiction)
Before that I read The Brothers Karamazov and next I intend to read Sun God (as I'm going to Egypt :woo:) and Pillars of the Earth

I read quite a lot though, so the few books currently being read doesn't really reflect my normal reading

I still haven't recovered from reading The Shining :sad:
It is actually a pretty unsettling book! I still love it though, it really gets into your psyche!

I feel rather low brow after reading through the thread.

The most recent few books I've read are (in no particular order):
Mammoth Book of Comic Fantasy
Wintersmith (Terry Pratchett)
Myths and Legends of World War 2
Shadow of the Scorpion (Neal Asher, sci fi)
The Swords of Night and Day (David Gemmell, fantasy)
