    In the past I've read books, than gone to the movies that were based on the book. I went alone to the evening shows. It was fun, however I think that a lot of the new movies are too long these days....

    There is some similarity between Lovecraft's "The Lurking Fear" and his other story "The Rats in the Walls". They have a similar feel and they touch on the same issue. They are not identical. I liked...

    Considering that he was talking to the Goddess, one might interpret it as insanity. It looks like he devised a plan to get revenge in the end.

    Why were they insane, especially when they had...

    That is about the only reason why I would read a non fiction or more precisely history. That is to enhance some literature, otherwise forget it. Too many people have trampled over the history books,...

    I'll read that thread but I'll wait until after I finish the story in order to avoid spoilers. I did see the movie some years ago, and they might have done two movies, I forget. If it is on iTunes,...

    I started to look at it already. It helps knowing that it is classified as science fiction rather than horror. As I read it, I can see how that makes sense. He must have already been thinking about...

    That long ago, hey. That makes it interesting. I'm going to read it regardless, but I'll keep that in mind. That actually sounds just fine. A hundred years it is.

    If I was civilized I might not be able to appreciate the little classics that I read. I might not be in awe of the details.

    "Of Mice and Men" is old news. He has another book called "The Grapes of Wrath" that might be good. I've never heard of the other author. Teachers make a big deal out of Steinbeck.

    School is used to control the masses, but unruly or uncivilized people are mostly people who are exposed to poverty and violence (Note: not the correct word). We are all placed in the same education...
