TJ has inspired me to revisit 1984 and, honestly, I think I like it much better this time around than the last time I read it. I think the last time I read it was probably around 1984, so that might have something to do with it, which seems unlike me, as I went through a bout of reading a bunch of books that people hated reading because they were required reading in school, or because they were considered classics in my late teens and early 20s. I know I read Animal Farm several times since those years. You know – Red Badge of Courage, almost everything Hemingway, Tropic of Cancer, Lord of the Flies, Beowulf, Le Morte de Arthur, Kafka, Sartre, Camus, Salinger… not everything, but I sure made a dent in “must read” oldies.
Maybe that’s what I need to do, read old literature. I’ve been eyeing Hemingway again… Thanks, TJ.
