  • finalrune

    You’re going to have to listen again to the ending to figure that out 🙂

  • dangerousdavis

    i am a teacher and i have to teach this stupid book

  • finalrune

    Davis – Ha! Well, hopefully the audio version of it shows it in a different light. What are the teachable moments in the story? The risks associated with getting stranded on a desert island and fighting off dogs with clever traps?

  • speedy

    this book sucks i hate it its a wast of time like all books are

  • finalrune

    Speedy – hopefully your teacher doesn’t come across this comment, ouch. I guess someone has failed to inspire you to love books and learning. Trust us, it’s the best stuff ever. Tell us what you like in movies, tv, etc. and we will hook you up with some good books.

  • drpigweiner

    “I am still a beast at bay.”
    One of the best short stories about our animal nature. It’s sad to see the youth so apathetic about reading – and the educators so careless about exploring the symbolism and meaning of this great novella. If you like this book read heart of darkness. These works speak volumes about human nature.

  • nunya
