Have you read I am the cheese? What did you think of it? Or how about another book that's just left you stunned, changed your life even?

Good choice, Tim. I've read "I am the Cheese", but so long ago that I can't recollect too much...but I remember it being a very good book. The recollection thing comes with age....like cheese or something, you always get better with age, but some parts get mushy...like my brain. Anyhow, that was quite a tangent...the age thing again. Many years ago, I also read a book called "A Separate Peace" by John Knowles. In fact, I did a final paper on the comparison/difference between "A Separate Peace" and "To Kill A Mockingbird". I'd recommend it...a very good book, if you are looking for something to read "A Separate Peace" by John Knowles.

Not read Cheese, but i did read Sophies World which was amazing - and not a little confusing :)

Yes, I've read IATC and I liked it a lot. Twas recommended (and sent, for that matter) to me by my online friend Maegan. On reading this entry, I immediately forced her to read it, and she approved.

Books that changed my life? "Trainspotting" by Irvine Welsh. Thanks to that book, I now live in Edinburgh, take heroin and talk like a character in it, ken? Well, the last one anyway.

I read "I am the Cheese" by Robert Cormier and I thought it was a little confusing, but once I realized where his bike ride took place everything came together like some sort of warped puzzle. I definitley think this book is a 'must-read.'

Though I had to read it for an Honors English course, I felt that that book is a very good read and very well written. The outcome of the book is dramatic and doesn't end the way you'd think it does. I'd gladly recommend this to anyone's list.+
