Explicações
aulsmith : I read it in high school, but remember it as light weight. If you haven't read other Verne, I wouldn't start here.
ahef1963: Funnily enough, it's the Verne I'd most recommend starting with. It's a bit hokey, but a lot of fun.

Explicações
aulsmith : This is certainly the best of the series, but not a classic
ahef1963: The whole series of Brother Cadfael mysteries are well-written, entertaining, and worth reading.

aulsmith : Thurber's getting a little old for modern tastes. I think the cartoons, the fables and "The Macbeth Murder Mystery" are hilarious, but you might not want to read it cover-to-cover.

Explicações
aulsmith : This was tough going. I wouldn't have finished it if it wasn't for a class. Still, it's an interesting and important book.
ahef1963 : As I was reading this novel independently, I found it impossible to understand. I gave it up.
