Frustrating Literature

1. Robinson Crusoe. It took me all summer a month into fall to get through it. There were two parts that interested me: the growing of his crops and then the coming of "the others" to the island. The rest of the book was really difficult to care about. I put it right up there with "Walden." Boo.

2. The Balloon Hoax by Edgar Allen Poe. A short story at least but couldn't bring myself to care about it. . . .
