    I don’t know if Caufield is into video games, but to play today’s games you have to read at least one 450 page book just to get the backdrop of the game… If she assigns Old Man and the Sea I’m gonna scream…….

    “Swamplandia” review and excerpt.

    It doesn’t appeal to me, but others will like it.

    I did read it, and I wouldn’t recommend it.

    Excellent, Caufield. You are allowed to check Swamplandia off of your reading list.
    Oh, wait. It’s not even on the list? Tough luck, son.

    ROFL – that book is a bit above Caulfield’s age, but not necessarily above his reading level based on what I’ve seen of him – some time he might actually read and enjoy it – I did. Hiwever I strongly doubt his teacher ever will – it takes imagination and a powerful willingness to suspend disbelief. Good author! Her collection of short stories -which includes one containing the main characters of Swamplandia) is
    St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves – which is a great read, and brought me out of a non-reading slump from depression!

    I don’t even know how many Halo novels there are now. I am curious how many people have played Bioshock who have no idea who Ayn Rand is, though.

    Hey, something I’ve never seen in a comic strip before: Caulfield properly used a semi-colon in dialog.

    Watch her read specific parts then challenge him to a test. If he fails he has to take the class in Summer school.

    I’d say 1,000,000 to 1 on a guess.

    Waiting to hear from all those teachers who wish they could have just one Caulfield in their class. Because they all love kids who complain and lie to them.

    I just wish I could have had one Caulfield in my class … maybe once every decade or so.
    Actually, I was the one who played that role to get the kids to ask better questions.
    Can we all remember it’s a set piece to lead to the punch line? She would have learned long ago to ask if there were any questions relating to the lesson … and mute
    Caulfield as out of bounds for 99% of his comments.
    Oh, and this also, they’re not real people.

    Don’t talk down to us. Please, there is always someone who gets a swelled head and thinks we don’t know the obvious. Of course we do. Apology accepted.

    It would have been very helpful for my future if I would have had a summer reading list. There was never a summer reading list in my schools. If there was a list and the students were responsible for it, and irresponsible parents were made aware of the list, then I could have gotten some much needed reading done over the summer. I may have been allowed in the house. I may have gotten some food to eat. But the rough, book-hating coach/teachers and administrators, some now drunken, never had a list of books for us to read. How could they? The school itself was not big on books. Many of the classes were sans books.
