    Reading the last few posts have just reminded me how much I enjoyed reading parts The Aeneid at school. Book 4 was definitely my favourite :)

    Yes, perfectly understandable to me. Looking at the sentence within the paragraph, I'd stick in a comma after Dr. Shaft, ie. before "with increasing electrical impulses".

    I find Dickens really easy and enjoyable to read. I think you can read classic literature on different levels - 1) purely for the story and 2) reading between the lines and digging into hidden...

    Richard Adams's Watership Down come to mind first. Anthropomorphised community of rabbits with their own culture, language, proverbs and mythology.

    Cool article! I love the fact that there's a book revolving about the two Charles's who never met - I wonder why it's important to us that famous people meet each other?!

    Does the RSC Live streaming of Henry IV Part 1 count? It's the last thing I saw at the cinema and I guess it was filmed in a way that made it more movie-esque, ie. Not filmed from one fixed viewpoint...

    Well, that's very true. I guess it's like anything, you get out what you put in and if you make the effort it usually pays off in some way. However, I'm not sure I'd necessarily call TV/Gaming a...

    Hah, maybe I'll give that a miss then! Seems like it's impossible to do a really good adaptation of it - I saw a theatrical production of it a few years ago and it was pretty abysmal too. I guess...

    I stuck the subtitles on after 15 minutes of the first episode which detracted from it somewhat, but the sound quality wasn't my main problem with it. For me, it wasn't creepy enough and neither the...

    I too have always aimed to read a book a week, and have never achieved that. That's okay though, it's better just to read when you feel in the right frame of mind rather than forcing it. That way you...
