I love the book, Count of Monte Cristo, it's my favorite of the classics, but I can't say I cared for that version of the movie. I think that the 1963 (?) version with Richard Chamberlain was much better, and more faithful to Dumas' tale.

As for reccommendations, I've always loved Jack London's tales of the Arctic, such as White Fang and Call of the Wild. Also, Edgar Allen Poe's a good bet.

I'll have to keep that in mind. So many movies to watch, so little time. tongue.gif

I agree with you on Jack London. I read Call of the Wild sometime during middle school (the year escapes me) and I loved it. After reading it for class I either bought my own copy or "borrowed" the school's copy. poster_oops.gif Still have that book somewhere . . .

"For man He suffered and He died:
If man will take His word as guide
And leave all infamy,
Then we shall come to happiness
And blisses more than we can guess in Jesu's company."

I'm not sure these are classics, but they are good. You must read C. S. Lewis' science fiction trilogy: Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra and That Hideous Strength. It's not terribly science fictiony, like star trek or something, so even if you don't normally like science fiction, it is good. And if you haven't read the Cronicles of Narnia, you must. Then there's The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux (sp?) and The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.

Cori, if you are looking for something with a realistic celtic twist (not fantasy) try one of these:

No Great Mischief by Alistair MacLeod
Each Man's Son by Hugh MacLennan
