What is the longest book you’ve ever read and how long did it take you to read it?
I think the longest book I’ve read is the unabridged version of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo(1,463 pages). I read this in high school and I think it took me a summer to read, but I don’t remember exactly how long. Awesome book, awesome musical.
If you could rewrite a book to make it to your liking, would you? Which book and why?
Ooo, this is a tough question, because I would definitely want to, but I don’t know if I would actually do it, it would feel too wrong. However, for arguments sake, I’ll pick a couple.
Out of classics I would pick Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, because when I read it I was so creeped out by Mr. Rochester that I was completely appalled when Jane went back to marry him. If I could rewrite it, I would show more of his positive qualities and maybe explain his previous marriage a little better, to show that he wasn’t a complete creep.
For newer books I would rewrite Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. I was so furious when I finished this book and I still get a little angry when I think about it. I won’t go into all of the issues I have with it, but the main thing I would change is the lack of closure between Gale and Katniss.
What is your least favorite book of all time and why does it suck so much?
If you had asked me this last year I would have said Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, but then I re-read it and it is now in my top ten…it makes me want to re-read everything from high school to see what I missed out on. Anyway, I don’t know what my all time least favorite book is, but my least favorite of the past two years has got to be The Fates and the Furies by Lauren Groff. Ugh, I really didn’t like anything about this book, not the plot, nor the characters, nor the voice, nada.
Thank you again to the Book Cover Girls for the nomination!!
