I liked it. There's a lot of symbolism that took me a while to get, though. ^^;

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Attitudes are contagious. Mine can kill you

Probably... I want to take that on but I don't have the time... I think I'll stick to Maugham and teen fic for a while until I do.

It's just really slow going with the Illiad. I have to read each stanza three times before I can really absorb what it says.

Oh, good book.

I'm reading The Hobbit (100 pages left, but it's getting really slow), also Beautiful Creatures. I'm started Burned and Shiver soon, too.
