Are you at all like me?
Do you ever try and think of your Top Ten books/movies/songs etc?
Last night I read TIME's 100 best English-language novels published since 1923
and I was amazed to discover my favourite book of all time was not included: East of Eden
How could this be? This is the greatest book of all time!!! It won a Pulitzer for goodness sake!! Even Jimmy Dean couldn't do it justice in the movie :0)
Lev Grossman and Richard Lacayo, the critics, included titles that had become great movies and, in my opinion, were better than the original books:
Deliverance just to name two.
I did love the reporters' quote at the bottom though:
"Lists like this one have two purposes. One is to instruct. The other of course is to enrage. We’re bracing ourselves for the e-mails that start out: “You moron! You pathetic bourgeoise insect! How could you have left off…(insert title here).” We say Mrs. Dalloway. You say Mrs. Bridge. We say Naked Lunch. You say Breakfast at Tiffanys. Let’s call the whole thing off? Just the opposite—bring it on."
I would love to earn a spot in your Top Ten - tell me, what do I need to do to earn this title? Let's get together and learn how best we can satisfy each others Buying and Selling needs. Call me, Susan Emo, and allow me the honour of becoming your Favourite Gananoque Realtor!
