Bert Books: We need a 'Books' prefix. (29) RE: Books: We need a 'Books' prefix. 17 Nov 14

Thanks Joe.

MGM, Huckleberry Finn, Yes, difficult to choose there. I didn't like Great Expectations. Oliver Twist wasn't too bad but Lionel Bart's musical was better than the book. I think that Bart had a greater talent than Dickens. But then again, we had Dickens forced upon us in School; there's nothing more guaranteed to put you off a book than reading around the class. They buggered up Shakespeare for me that way as well.

Topsie, ...and what about Through the Looking-Glass? Yes another difficult choice. Lewis Carroll was a weird character, a mathematical genius, a great author and poet; but somehow his Sylvie and Bruno didn't seem to work so well. My favorite work of his is The Hunting of the Snark, but a single poem doesn't qualify as a book. It should be required reading for all Mathematics courses simply because of its brilliant illustration of the concept of zero.
