Been too long since I read that one, can't remember it. As for Les Mis, only got through maybe 400 pgs in 7th grade and lost interest. -___- I was like, "When is Marius going to show up? I'm bored."

Our school did Les Mis as their play 3 years ago. Huge deal for a high school to do it apparently, and it was great. :D Half the town always comes to our plays.

I did a book report on Animal Farm for school when I was younger. It was a great book. :) I also thing it ahs nothing to do with animal rights - it's about communism and Stalinist Russia . . .

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I really think people read just too far into books, sometimes you just need to sit back and enjoy the journey and let your mind wander, forgetting the forest and the trees.

Here here! That's how I feel about many of the books and short stories I had to read in English. When you read something to analyze it, you completely kill all the joy of reading. Any insight into a book should just come naturally as you read it.

Olympia, hey, that's awesome! I don't think even our local small theater companies have attempted to stage it, only our professional theater company.

Haha, that's the bonus of reading "classics" for fun. You can use them for book reports and you don't have to waste time reading a book since you've already read it.

I've read all Jane Austen's complete novels, blew thru Les Mis in two weeks (the unabridged/unaltered version) and LOVED Animal Farm. Read it when I was 10, and it was the first novel I read that had those layers and hidden meanings. I soaked it up. My favorite part has always been the very ending when the pigs and the humans start melding together in the onlookers' eyes. It sums things up so well.

Unnamed -- Red Butterfly? HM Male -- 20-gallon divided



Loki -- American Eskimo Dog -- 8 years
Kiara -- "Domesticated" Feline -- 5 years
Horatio -- Hermit Crab -- 5 years?
