I am so with you on 'The Lord of the Flies'. I've tried to start that book myself, but the opening is so mind-numbingly slow. It's just talking and no one doing anything. And I get that's the point; "doing nothing" is probably not a good idea when you're in a life-or-death survival situation. But reading it is just so dry. There needs to be something, maybe a B-plot, or some comedy during the boring bits, or a snarky narrator, or something. Yeah, maybe it'll be annoying or distracting, but that'd at least be something, some kind of hook to grab attention until the good stuff kicks in.Tried to start 'The Lord of the Flies' yet again, since I've got to read it for college. No luck for now, I find the start pretty boring and can't go on for some reason.
Huh. Guess I had a Lord of the Flies rant in me. Well, that's out of my system. Thank you for the opportunity.
Anyways, I've finished Plato and a Platypus. There was a quiz at the end, to make sure you weren't skimming. Got me hung up for a long while. The authors knew exactly where to throw their one egg, and now it's all over my face. They're smarter than me, I'll give them that. Probably should read books from front to back now.
