I love paxil writers....  tolstoy would have a high dosage, sometimes he crosses the melodramatic border.

first out...since aye am "WRITING" this and not speaking...

you are acting in a "queer" manner of response.


Quote from: BroncoWrestling on February 07, 2005, 06:30:23 PM
dude, you are a weirdo .... speak normally, no one thinks you are cool.


oh yea ... Eagles, huh ? Can't believe you'd question the best team in the league


why do you write like a childish imp?...aye "normally" wonder about books and words that a "peculiar person" might have selected...and it says a great deal about the woman...or man.

aye do not care if you think aye am kool or not...punk...

you, my childish friend, are using "bachai gaiging" wordz....and normally, aye laugh at you...but today...aye will let u go...until u understand "respect"...and...

be kool...


(jamie kennedy would have a field day with your words little man) and glad some ill...ah...derrr...um it is asking what books to read is like paris hilton asking which manure is finer...cows or sheep....just for the record...




aye have a few choice books for the potential lawyer...these books will get u through the most difficult states "bar exam"...and help u ace the l.s.a.t.s....take it or leave it....simple to the difficult....



"the secret sharer"...joseph conrad
"animal farm"...george orwell
"the prince"...machevalli
"the life of pi"...yann martel
"1984"...george orwell
"the dubliners"...james joyce
"the alchemist"...paulo coelho
"global rift"...(note) look that up on your own
"confederacy of dunces"...john kennedy toole.
"brave new world"...aldous huxley
"the exorcist"...william peter blatty
"the empty mirror"...janwillem van de wetering
"parable of the sower"...octavia butler
"portrait of the artist as a young man"...james joyce
"rankenstein"...mary shelley
"macbeth"...w. shakespeare
"richard III"...w. shakespeare
"finnagan's wake"...james joyce
"merchant of venice"...w. shakespeare

after that a lawyer should be prepared with language unless they wish to
understand lawrence of arabia and the small minded people along the caspian sea...esp. those who do not understand the kurdish people and blue eyed people...hmmmmm?

then the world will wake them up...and make them see...that "row, row, row, your boat...life is vut not a dream...and reality is going to smack them right in the fuching face..."...and realize that no one can steal ideas.

our trinidad/tobago...watches..

by the way...these are books which will help any law student do well on the bar exam...let alone the l.s.a.t....in any united state....


addendum: the only reason aye left out the f in one of the books is because a certain former saturday night live member is trying to make a name for herself...sorry, aye do not subscribe to "simpletons."

indigo, life of pi is pretty horrible.  what is the deal with the predatory island?  it is like the author forgot what kind of book they were writing and suddenly decided to throw in a little science fiction.  i liked the relaionship that developed between pi and R.P., but otherwise I am glad I finished it.

actually the whole story is "science fiction" aye thought that was part of the jib...you know..a raft with a bangali tiger...hmmm...sorry...tough to swallow...no pun intended...

yes, it is science fiction...but there is a lesson to be learned....and it makes for some interesting action and some good...bask in the glorious sun reading...after all it is true fiction....sorry, aye liked it...and it is kool you mah friend did not...that is okay...

aye have read other books on science fiction and been intrigued from the get go and then it just becomes farce...and then aye get upset...so aye did not include them in my choices...like this book which aye will not list the title to regarding a comet coming to the earth....

the story just disintegrated in my fingertips...what can aye say..

any thoughts on the other books...they do help lawyers studying for lsats...however...maybe not a bar exam....but definately the lsats. :)

The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint, Brady Udall


That is such a great book, definitely one of my favorites.

Okay, now for light beach reading:
For humor: Small Gods, by Terry Pratchett.
For Sci-Fi: Expendable by James Alan Gardner, or Snow Crash, by Neal Stephenson
For a tear-jerker: Paula, by Isabelle Allende

I tried to read Foucault's Pendulum when I was in Italy, but eh. I thought maybe it was just because the Italian was too hard, but I couldn't get it in English either. I'm told he's a bit of a 'one hit wonder' (meaning The Name of the Rose)

Anyone well-versed in the fields of intellectual history or rhetoric theory wouldn't dare say this.  Eco is awesome - intellectually, DEFINITELY not a "one-hit wonder".


But I see the point, "literature"-wise.

Pish, J only wants to waste YOUR time.  Get wise.

I enjoyed Baudolino by Eco...story took a while to get going
Mr. White: Smoke?
Mr. Pink: I quit.
[later]
Mr. Pink: What, you got one?
