My best friend just gave me this book for my girls to read. I haven't given it to them yet as I wanted to peruse it first. Do you think it's age appropriate for a 13 & 10 year old?

I have had the unabridged version of Stranger in a Strange Land (it's about 1/4 longer than the original version published in 1961) in my bookcase for a long time. Bored with murder mysteries I decided to read it again after maybe 30 years. I am about half way through it....

boy I had forgotten how bad sexism really was then....and some homophobia....but the story is still a great one.....

off to 'grok' it more....

Catalina, As far as age appropriate for 10 - 13. I haven't a clue as yet, but it is listed as a YA series.

I just chewed through those on my Kindle. I'll be re-reading them. Lots of interesting themes.

Tawse, it's pretty brutal. The 13 yr old yes, but if the 10 yr old is prone to nightmares, I'd hold off for a year or so.

Yep finished book 1 this morning..and I'm not even sure if I'd want a 13 year old to read it... but I guess it depends on the 13 year old.

Tough subject matter...

Default Debt: The First 5,000 Years

I just finished reading archaeologist David Graeber's book!

Graeber's compelling evidence presents a stunning reversal of conventional of how economics has been construed for eons. I found this book very interesting and could not put it down.

I'm keeping this book (strong recommendation).

"The Rules of Civility" by Amor Towles and "The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo" series. And..because I can never read just ONE book (or two in this case) I am also re-reading several Agatha Christie mysteries.

"Recollections: An Autobiography" by Viktor Frankl

I started this a while back, put it down, then decided
if he, and his family could have gone through what they did,
I can honor and witness their lives by reading it all.

Its a book of not many pages, but powerful nonetheless.

I found it in one of my old bookstore visits, so it may be
out of print. Check Amazon.

Count me in for another fan of The Hunger Games. Can't wait to see the movie in the Spring! Disturbing series, especially considering it's for young adults. I got to the end and still couldn't figure out if it was a comedy or a tragedy (you know, in the classic meaning: is there redemption or not?). It's not often I find that.

And... since everyone* on this site writes like David Foster Wallace (at least according to another thread), I'm re-reading his fantastic book of essays, A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again.**

Just finished Vladimir Nabokov's "Ada"- 626 pages of exquiste and wonderful writing...could'nt let it go...it took me a week to finish reading..it took him a lifetime to finish writing. It was about this great writer's life living among the elite upper class, and his awesome love for Ada.

read a sample of Divergent last night. Pretty sure I'll be dl it tonight for reading...

Apparently I really like Dystopian YA books.

I really hope this isn't as intense as Hunger Games.

I probably won't be done with the book I'm reading right now until later this week but I'm going to check out The Hunger Games soon!

JD? I've read the book of essays by Wallace: A Supposedly a fun thing I'll never do again. Which of his essays did you appreciate the most?

(gotta go, I'm at work)
