Classics Club Spin! August 2018

So.   I saw on Twitter this morning that the latest SPIN! number was about to be announced and then…

I missed the interim window to make my list because I saw that the SPIN! number was published!  Ooops. whoops. I hadn’t made my list yet.

So I entered 20 books into a random list order generator and so I could still be surprised by whichever book landed on the SPIN.

Here’s the list BEFORE I entered them into the randomizer:

The Three Musketeers – Alex Dumas
Jude the Obscure – Hardy
the Woodlanders – Hardy
Rabbit, Run – Updike
Naked Lunch – Wm Burroughs
Love in a Cold Climate – Nancy Mitford
Wide Sargasso Sea – Jean Rhys
The House of the Seven Gables – Hawthorne
Vanity Fair – Thackeray
Dead Souls – Nikolay Gogol
Candide – Voltaire
The Golden Notebook – Doris Lessing
Gravity’s Rainbow – Thomas Pynchon
Confederacy of Dunces – JKToole
Twelve Years a Slave – Solomon Northup
The Way We Live Now – Trollope
the Counterfeiters – A. Gide
A Handful of Dust – Waugh
The Ox-bow Incident – Walter Van Tilberg Clark
Eileen Chang’s Love in a Fallen City

and here’s the results UP to the SPIN NUMBER of 9:

  1. the Woodlanders – Hardy
  2. The Way We Live Now – Trollope
  3. Eileen Chang’s Love in a Fallen City
  4. The Golden Notebook – Doris Lessing
  5. Twelve Years a Slave – Solomon Northup
  6. Rabbit, Run – Updike
  7. Love in a Cold Climate – Nancy Mitford
  8. Jude the Obscure – Hardy
  9. Wide Sargasso Sea – Jean Rhys

 

Alrighty then! Off to the library website to order the book. Or go to Audible and check if the narration is highly rated? Maybe. I have a credit to use…

  1. Yayyy! I always love seeing what people are reading with their classics club spin. I can’t wait to hear what you think of Wide Sargasso Sea. I’m never going to read it because I am too scared it would ruin Jane Eyre for me! So I must depend on the opinions of others. :p

  2. I had trouble with Wide Sargasso Sea. It is not a straight forward narrative. If you can find it on audio, I would be curious to know how that works for you. As I recall, it was all very poetic and stream of consciousness with lots of intense, lush imagery. So if the right person read it to me, I might “get” it more than I did reading it on my own way back when. 🙂
