Over at The Classics Club blog (which is an outgrowth of Jillian’s Classics Club idea and project), there is a monthly discussion question related, of course, to classic literature. This month the participants are asked:
So my choice is more like “a” favorite classic. And I’m going with Joseph Heller’s Catch-22.
It was one of four books I had to read the summer before 11th grade AP English. It was the first book that I remember really struggling with – what was all this nonsense going on? I don’t get it! Them, at some point, it just clicked, and I was in love. I felt like I was let in on a little secret, one that you had to work for. That was the first time that happened with a book, but not the last. Others since then have been Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying and One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
What books have made you feel that way?
