Doctor John Worst book (108* d) RE: Worst book 21 Sep 00


T. H. White's The Sword in the Stone , a wonderful legend turned into garbage. Anything by Terry Pratchet - sounds like reject chapters from Lord of the Rings performed by the Month Python team on an off day.
Trying to read Dickens is like trying to read Homer in Greek: try one in English and the other on BBC Television, then you'll enjoy them! Dickens's books were popular serials in Victorian times which is always a puzzel to me; did people think in longer sentences then or just have more time? Dr John
