Today's Question - What does the Great American Novel mean to me?
That's a great question. Like Ginger Simpson, I hated reading certain books in school. The Scarlett Letter comes to mind. Hate, hate, hated that book. I loved Gone With the Wind. One of my other favorites is Forever Amber. That being said, I'm not sure I can name The Great American Novel.

I'm like you, Ro. The only Great American novels that came to mind were mostly ones foist upon me during H.S. because someone thought the writing was great. In most cases, I disagreed. :) I would much rather read one of your books any day.

Now, I for one loved The Scarlett Letter. I also loved The Tale of Two Cities. Maybe I figured since I had to read them, I might as well get enjoyment out of them? haha.

Thanks, Ginger, you're a sweetheart. I flunked all the tests we had to take for The Scarlet Letter and also Tale of Two Cities. I did, however enjoy A Christmas Carol, both the book and the movie.

Charlie, you're a better man than I am, Gunga Din! Like you Roseanne, most of the classic classics are lost on me. I read Gone With the Wind the summer between the second and third grades though. Took me two weeks. Nobody believed it then, probably don't believe it now, but it's the truth. Another great classic hailed as a classic that I truly love is To Kill a Mockingbird. But I don't think there's one great anything. Sort of like comparing apples to oranges. Many of them are great.

A few people around here seem a little deficient in their geography ... A Tale of Two Cities was written by Charles Dickens, a well-known British author, which would seem to disqualify it as a great American novel!

OK, as John Cleese would say, "Now for something completely different." I'm going to suggest, as the Great American Novel, "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand. I've worn out two or three paperbacks re-reading it. Has anybody else read it? Try it (but leave plenty of time, we're talking 1100 pages).

To Kill a favorite too. But the author only wrote that one book. I've always wondered why.

I've never read To Kill a Mockingbird.
