For English... "Romeo and Juliet"
It's sort of cool, but when you begin to analize it, you start thinking... Damn, what was going on in Shakespeare's head?! :ninja:

  Opium was in fashion those days so ... whi knows :D


   yo yo yo
Not only that, was Shakespeare some sort of sexually perverted mind?! :ninja:

A Cosmopolitan  :lol3:
Wow, I didn't know you liked that kind of scientific litterature Livi :whistle:

right now I'm reading Moliere - Tartuffe..again something I need for school..but this  one is one of the best things I've been reading lately..
Molière was a master, and it's a pleasure to read in French :thumbup:

I'm sure the guy would be serious metalhead had he born at the end of the last century.

It's ok once in a while, requires 0 intelectual effort so it makes you disconnect  :insane:

I'm currently reading my x-mas gift: The special edition of One Hundred Years of Solitude made by the Royal Spanish Academy and the Association of Spanish Laguage Academies to celebrate Gabo's 80 b-day and the 25th anniversary of his Nobel prize. Just one word: this book has been, is and will always be a killer :bow:

I've the same book, same edition, Alu. I read the novel long years ago (perhaps first year in the Uni... a looot of time  :insane: ), and some day I'd like to read it again. When I'll have time enough... some day, some month  :unsure:

This one is another killer :bow:
I have read three times, and well, about Raskolnikov's sisters I can tell that... you'll have to finish the book to know if she does something with Razumikin or not :biggrin:

I read Crime and Punishment at a kinda inappropiate age: around 12 or 13. I cannot even remember how it finished  :wacko:

Ok, sort of out of the topic, but I just came back from watching "Love in the Time of Cholera", the movie. :whistle:
Thumbs up! :thumbup:
I haven't read the book, but I have to admit I liked it. :biggrin:
Aluqak, since I can see you're a Gabo fan, go watch it, you probably will like it!

I already have seen that movie and....  :unsure: .... well, you better go and read the book TheOne, you wiil probably like it better.
Gabo's book shouldn't be taken to the cinema by a very simple reason, Gabo's "magic" stands in the way he tells the story, in the words he uses, in the analogies he makes. As you cannot show that in a movie...  the magic is gone :bye: . That's only my opion of course, but thanks for the suggestion anyway :thumbup: .

Oh! by the way, now reading La joie de vivre (the joy of life) by Emile Zola.
