Re: The Book thread.

Desperation was a lot better IMO, but both were pretty silly but thats kind of expected with King.

I don't think so? Given the speech in the last book, I can sort of see where they're coming from but blah.

Re: The Book thread.

Has anyone read 1984 by George Orwell? Would you recommend it to a 16 year-old?

It's not really long at all. Depending on the version of the book it can be from 300-400 pages. It was one of the first books I read when I was becoming a more serious reader in my senior year of high school. I loved it.

Yes, you should definitely check this novel out if classic literature interests you. It's not even 300 pages.
