So, I'm not quite sure if I've got this blog hop figured out. So other participants, correct if I'm wrong. I believe the dealio is that this blog goes on all the time, but there is just one question a month, and you have to answer it in the first 4 days of the month.... And the books have to have some literary merit.
Well here goes, assuming that I am correct.
This month's question is as follows :
What work of literature would you recommend to someone who doesn't like literature?
This is a tough one. I recommended that my husband read Gone with the Wind and that didn't turn out so well. He recommended that I read The Paladin and Dune, and that hasn't worked out yet either. So I might not be the best bet to recommend books. Too bad I have a book blog, mwahahahaha.
Ok, but seriously. This is a tough one. I love The Great Gatsby and I think it is an easy one to understand. It's short so it won't frustrate you and I think it'd be a good introduction to "literature". You could also start with a "children's" book like Peter Pan or Treasure Island. Those sort of adventures can lead you to more and more books. They're also not so simplistic that you'll feel like an idiot for reading them. I think Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson was one of the first "literary" books I read and I was hooked. After that I read Treasure Island and The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo, et al.
So those are my recommendations! Thanks for stop by!Pin It
