I came across Jason Pettus when looking at other reviews of Special Topics in Calamity Physics A few link hops later I found his CCLaP 100 project to read the classics His impetus for the project was to widen his literary foundation and base of reference this despite being to me demonstrably well read and thoughtful about literature alreadyIt is I think the rare person that can confidently declare themselves to be well read Everyone develops their own personal taste as a reader and with diminishing time for pleasure reading in adulthood it gets harder and harder to push yourself outside your comfort zone while still keeping reading from becoming a chore I spent three years in college mowing through the Western canon and reading is my most significant hobby time wise and I wouldn t say I am absolutely I mean I can hang but I also have huge blind spotsAnd so Pettus chose his classics subjectively skewing towards books to fill specific holes and titles by selected authors that were in line with his personal interests The reviews focus less on the literary merits of the books which are somewhat assumed given their place on the list at all and on their classic status by which Pettus means everyone should read them before they die as good and significant literature as opposed to mere historical relics or because some person in a position of authority said soEach review summarizes the arguments for and against sort of like s most helpful positive and negative reviews box and then Pettus decides for himself Some books get a simple yes or no Others interestingly get a for now The Age of Innocence or not yet In the Name of the RoseI really enjoyed these essays They were the right balance of scholarly and collouial I liked getting Pettus thoughts on the books I d already read about 20 in the complete list and also found them useful for books I hadn t for a sense of the historical context and the features and characteristics I might want to look forFinally I love that he collected his essays into an ebook and made it available online for free under a Creative Commons license A further forty or so essays are available on the CCLaP website and Goodreads but haven t yet been assembled into Volume 2 I hope they are soonSail on Jason

A long time ago when pterodactyls swooped over the skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan and plesiosaurs frolicked in the Thames a steady stream of great reviews of classic novels appeared on Goodreads from Jason Pettus He ran an outfit called the CCLaP which iis some kind of arts thing in Chicago and he had decided to read 100 allegedly classic novels he d never read before and report back on whether he thought they were really classics Okay I know we could all do that but over the months of 20089 I realised that JP s casual but excitable style was perfect for his project and his opinions were rock solid He gathered up the first 33 reviews into this volume which is downloadable here totally recommend this to anyone who wants to see a classic novel get a good going over Each review has a section The argument for it being a classic followed by the argument against followed by JP s personal view Here are the books reviewed The Art of War Sun TzuThe Republic Plato Gulliver s Travels Jonathan Swift Northanger Abbey Jane AustenHouse of the Seven Gables Nathaniel HawthorneMadame Bovary Gustave FlaubertGreat Expectations Charles DickensTwenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea Jules VerneThe Adventures of Tom Sawyer Mark Twain Washington Suare Henry JamesTreasure Island Robert Louis StevensonThe Island of Dr Moreau HG WellsDracula Bram StokerCandida George Bernard ShawSister Carrie Theodore DreiserHeart of Darkness Joseph ConradThe Call of the Wild Jack LondonThe Man Who Was Thursday GK ChestertonTarzan of the Apes Edgar Rice BurroughsThe Age of Innocence Edith WhartonThe Great Gatsby F Scott Fitzgerald Mrs Dalloway Virginia WoolfA Farewell to Arms Ernest HemingwayThe Sound and the Fury William Faulkner Tropic of Cancer Henry MillerThe Catcher in the Rye JD SalingerThe Ripley Trilogy Patricia Highsmith The Left Hand of Darkness Ursula K Le Guin The Gods Themselves Isaac AsimovThe Name of the Rose Umberto EcoBeloved Toni MorrisonMiddlesex Jeffrey EugenidesI have read a mere half of theseI don t agree with JP all the time far from it Here he is on Washington Suare which is a poignant study of Victorian repression Washington Suare comes and goes with the reader barelynoticing just when you think the story s about to get ratcheted up and interesting suddenly it s over and you realize that the entire point was to provide not much than a trifling and amusing afternoon of diversionWrong Jason wrong And The Sound and the Fury gets a strong beating So let me admit I have a terrible confession to make today that out of the 22 books I ve now reviewed for this essay series this is only the second I wasn t able to actually finish the other being the 2200 year old Republic by Plato And the reason I couldn t finish it frankly is exactly for the Modernist stream of consciousness style that it s so well known for because frankly although I think the style has its strengths when used with a light touch I also think it s a hacky unreadable mess when delved into with too much gusto exactly what so many of the early Modernists did in their misguided zeal to just do anything new they possibly couldIs it a classic No Also he loves Tropic of Cancer so much that I ve half a mind to read another Henry Miller to see if I still hate him There are lots of fun things here On The Catcher in the Rye So imagine my shock when I found myself finishing this book and saying to myself My God JD Salinger is basically Judy Blume with cursing Or to be completely fair I guess that should be worded My God Judy Blume is basically JD Salinger with Jews and menstruation I guess I had been expecting a lot given what a supernaturally high regard this book has among such a large swath of the general population I was expecting it to not only be a good Young Adult novel which it admittedly is but also something that was going to reveal some sort of transcendent truth about the world to me as a fully grown adultErit doesn t Anyway although I heartily dislike only having a damned pdf file of this and not and a proper printed copy as I should have nevertheless for all you reviewhounds out there that s all of you ain t it I RECOMMEND this for everybody So where is volume 2
