Fall/Winter of Freedom '09 and '10

A Listmania! list by Trekkintheplains "Take a sad song and make it better" (South Dakota, USA)
The list author says: "Having finished my double-major, I have now found myself devoid of the masses of homework I would normally have at this time of year. Therefore, I have created my own homework to throw myself into, and am using this list to keep track of my interests and comments. However, I find much brain-candy has crept in as well, so this may well be educational and entertaining...I can only hope for as much!"
Twisted Tree
1.  Twisted Tree by Kent Meyers
The list author says:
  "Brilliant! Please ignore the bad reviews. For clarity: these are interrelated stories about actions, failure to act, and the unforseen, drastic consequences. It's a web of starling connections exploring our drives, regrets, & deepest thoughts. If nothing else, enjoy this piece of genius for its utter beauty, language, and appreciation of rural SD."

The Chronicles of Narnia
2.  The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
The list author says:
  "Classic favorites. While I am not a practicing Christian, I can still appreciate these books for their wonderful characters, lovely storylines, and lessons both young and old can appreciate. I grew up on Narnia and love it still with truly affectionate nostalgia."
$14.39   Used & New from: $0.01

Sookie Stackhouse 8-copy Boxed Set (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood)
3.  Sookie Stackhouse 8-copy Boxed Set (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood) by Charlaine Harris
The list author says:
  "Just re-read these after watching season 1 of True Blood. Have to say, the books are better. Sookie is one smart girl, and she's realistic in her fears, hopes, and expectations. I find Harris has done well in developing each character's personality and flaws. These books are fun, but smartly so."

Dead And Gone (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood, Book 9)
4.  Dead And Gone (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood, Book 9) by Charlaine Harris
The list author says:
  "This isn't in any of the boxed sets yet.  Looking forward to #10.  I've realized on the 2nd time around that I enjoy these books more than I realized. Perhaps, after my English education, I've become a bit too much of a lit-snob, so I'm happy to see I can still appreciate them."
$29.66   Used & New from: $1.83

Harry Potter Paperback Box Set (Books 1-7)
5.  Harry Potter Paperback Box Set (Books 1-7) by J. K. Rowling
The list author says:
  "While technically these books are no great body of literature, they are honestly some of the best books I have ever read! What an imagination Rowling has! I truly love her character development, intricate plots, and all the morality struggles. They're easy for kids to read, but older readers can glean SO much more from these pages!!"
$65.07   Used & New from: $39.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,964 customer reviews)

Pride and Prejudice (Penguin Classics)
6.  Pride and Prejudice (Penguin Classics) by Ian Edginton
The list author says:
  "Time to dust off these novels again and delve into one of my favorite worlds: that of Jane Austen. It's so refreshing to time-travel 200 years into the past where clothes were clothes and language just as complex as dressing used to be, hehe. My fave movie adaptation - Kiera Knightley and Matthew McFadyen. Yes!!"
$7.60   Used & New from: $0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3,559 customer reviews)

Persuasion (Penguin Classics)
7.  Persuasion (Penguin Classics) by Jane Austen
The list author says:
  "In all seriousness, for all that these are Romantic-era, human nature has not changed. And if there's anything Ms. Austen knew how to do, it was getting to the core of every person she wrote."
$5.40   Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (760 customer reviews)

Mansfield Park (Penguin Classics)
8.  Mansfield Park (Penguin Classics) by Jane Austen
The list author says:
  "Fanny is definitely the most prim, proper main character in Austen's work, and I feared I would have trouble relating to her.  Still, I found I liked this book more actually reading it that I have cared for any movie adaptations.  It was better than I expected and I really enjoyed it!"
$7.20   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (458 customer reviews)

Emma (Penguin Classics)
9.  Emma (Penguin Classics) by Jane Austen
The list author says:
  "Emma, Emma, Emma.  Her antics are quite entertaining, and at the same time, exasperating!  I've seen some decent film adaptations, but of course none of them compare to Ms. Austen's own writing!  Even with all her foibles, we still root for Emma and want SO much for her to open her eyes and be happy!"
$7.20   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (459 customer reviews)

Sense and Sensibility (Penguin Classics)
10.  Sense and Sensibility (Penguin Classics) by Jane Austen
The list author says:
  "How annoying, some of these books are showing the editors or those who wrote the intros as the author...*sigh. Well, at least we know who really wrote them!!!"
$6.65   Used & New from: $0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (682 customer reviews)

The Mysteries of Udolpho (Oxford World's Classics)
11.  The Mysteries of Udolpho (Oxford World's Classics) by Ann Ward Radcliffe
The list author says:
  "I tried to read this, I really did.  After about 200 pages, I was exasperated with all the excruciating details, crying, agonizing, and fainting.  I wanted to read this and get an understanding of it so I could see into Northanger Abbey more, but I got impatient and moved on to another book..."

Jane Eyre (Collector's Library)
13.  Jane Eyre (Collector's Library) by Charlotte Bronte
The list author says:
  "Ah Jane, Rochester, I have been away from you for too long... I'm SO looking forward to this beautifully written, vivid, truthful novel, again! Definitely an all-time favorite!"
$8.96   Used & New from: $4.06
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3,153 customer reviews)

The Gunslinger (Revised Edition): The Dark Tower I
14.  The Gunslinger (Revised Edition): The Dark Tower I by Stephen King
The list author says:
  "I was moved to pick this novel up again and go through the few-thousand pages of this 7-book saga. I still love them!  So far removed from his normal horror novels! These books incorporate the multiverse theory, classic literature, and different elements of world religion. They truly are unique, masterful works!"
$15.31   Used & New from: $0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (935 customer reviews)

The Drawing of the Three: (The Dark Tower #2)
15.  The Drawing of the Three: (The Dark Tower #2) by Stephen King
The list author says:
  "It is because of The Dark Tower series that Stephen King stands so high in my estimation.  I have seen enough of his movie adaptations to dislike his horror works (not a fan of horror in general), but these redeem him in my eyes and more!"
$6.95   Used & New from: $0.01
