I like non-fiction, and I'm learning to like fiction more every day.

Jacob's Room (Oxford World's Classics)

Jacob's Room - Virginia Woolf I loved how I could easily imagine being there with the boys on that island. In fact, many of the characters even reminded me of former classmates on the playground or bus stop ;) Thank God for that bell. Again, I read this in high school and I was challenged by the conflict to grapple with the proper purpose and scope of government and I also was confronted with the depraved nature of man in a compelling story, even more so perhaps than I understood from Sunday School stories such as the Garden of Eden. How could you not like this book?
