What was your best and worst required reading in school?
Best maybe Othello, worst - I couldn't really get into The Colour Purple - you?
I loved reading The Canterbury Tales and I hated reading The Great Gatsby. Plus our teacher made us watch the Great Gatsby movie with Mia Farrow.
My favourite was probably A streetcar named desire, and my worst 'King of the castle' or 'I'm the king of the castle' - something like that. It was about a young boy (10?) who ended up killing himself, it wasn't at all believable
The best was - without a doubt - J. W. Goethe's Faust, the worst was The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. I still wonder how he found a publisher...
