  1. Haha, this so good. I tried to read this book on a bet. I lost horribly.

    • “A Tale of Two Cities” lends itself to this diagram, as well.

      • Really? I’ve never read any Dickens. I know he’s wordy, but I thought that was supposed to be good.

        • Maybe by the standards of educated people. I, a proud ignoramus, refuse to be swayed by the hoity-toity “intellectuals” who will never fully appreciate the grandeur that is Homer Simpson. You have to decide which team you’re on: smart people or Republicans.

          • Yeah a lot of those “classics” are unreadable and thicker than dictionaries. I’ve dug a lot of those old timey adventure novels though, like Call of the Wild and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Ha, but I guess those hardly belong in the same category.

  2. I was with you on the Anna Karenina, but I beg to differ about A Tale of Two Cities!

    • Oh, beg away. The same thing happens with Hemingway and Steinbeck. I can’t stand them, can’t understand the appeal, and can’t fathom why they’re “great.” I maintain it’s a conspiracy to make preteens and teens suffer by requiring them to read *and* appreciate them.
