I found this meme from Book Club Classics!
What is the best classic you were “forced” to read in school (and why)?
If only we did read classics in school. I mean, reading the whole unabridged version. The only ones we read were Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe and The Pearl by John Steinbeck. Those were the really simplified versions.
What was the worst classic you were forced to endure (and why)?
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It was so boring that I skipped several pages. Too long-winded for me. I wanted to read Sense and Sensibility next but decided to skip that too!
Which classic should every student be required to read (and why)?
Uncle Tom's Cabin. To learn about history, slavery, and injustice.
Which classic should be put to rest immediately (and why)?
It has to be Jane Austen's classics.
**Bonus** Why do you think certain books become “classics”?
Hmm, I don't know why either. Strong plot? Unforgettable characters? Happy endings? The really difficult aka boring level of English? Yeah, I guess these determine why classics are classics.
I'm not going to tag anybody. Feel free to do this meme in your blog too and do let me know when you're done!
