What book did you read at an early age that you thought was dumb but later re-read as an adult and found more meaningful? Great Gatsby and Shakespeare for me.
(more like “have no idea what’s up” than “dumb”) Bhagvad Gita
Literal exact same for me! Also, the Old Testament and, increasingly, the New Testament.
The Fountainhead (but the reverse effect)
After reading that Hunter S. Thompson would type out his favorite novels (Great Gatsby, A Farewell to Arms) to get a feel for how they were written I tried it with Gatsby. Really fun exercise and you really do start to mimic the cadences. Wears off after a while though like an English accent after a summer abroad.
almost everything I was forced to read in Great Gatsby Hamlet Moby Dick Grapes of Wrath The Odyssey
Some Bible books & Crime and Punishment
Yeah all Shakespeare
The little prince 🤴 Anna Karenina Games people play
Alice in Wonderland
