Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

Actually, I enjoyed War and Peace a great deal. It had some of the best characters I have ever run across. For me, it was only when Tolstoy meandered on his historical and sociological soapbox, which he did periodically near the end, that the story lost cohesion for me.

Well - I think I might read it again one day, but I'll need a glossary to figure out all the characters. I mean, every soap opera is less complicated Very Happy

Hey Very Happy

Anne of ... - I tried Anne of Green Gables, and simply not my taste. So, never, will I pick any of the Anne of --- books

I read the first half of Little Women when I was younger. I don't hate it viciously, but I won't read it.

It's only because I hated Animal Farm.

Hmmm...If you hated the writing style in Animal Farm, then you may dislike 1984. Although the genres are completely different, and could even be by different authors, Orwell continues to use simple language. This actually makes the novel more (in my opinion) beautiful. 1984 is more of a 'normal' novel. Animal Farm is what he termed 'a modern fairy tale'.
