Ask Slashdot: What Are the Books Everyone Should Read?

Michael Wolf don't read To Kill a Mockingbird! (796 comments)

It's soul-crushingly boring. All those years ago it had daring content, but now it's just long and tedious.

Try Pride and Prejudice. The great thing about it is that it's hilarious from the opening sentence. Also, it turns out that one of the seemingly odeous characters in part has some social anxiety problems that masquerade as something different, which some people on this website may be able to identify with. There are so many other interesting characters, some with completely obvious flaws, some whose appearances are completely deceptive, and some who are in the middle, straightforward but with issues going on that surprise even themselves.

The contrast between the two books couldn't be greater in terms of the pleasure you will get. And the second has more to teach about life as well, despite being written 100 years earlier.

Has My Cell Number Been Cloned?

Michael Wolf don't speculate (561 comments)

The cloning is a red herring. Your bill is wrong. Tell them, ask them to fix it. You don't know if it's cloning, and you don't care. By throwing out irrelevant theories, you are just distracting from the real issue.
