For me, classic books need to be readable because I'm not studying literature at university these days. There are many important books published decades or even centuries ago that have great significance but I'm not going to recommend them for your reading enjoyment. The prime example is Moby Dick, which I have read and I will never recommend. Life's too short and that novel is too hard to read. Also some major examples of classic literature that make everyone else's list did not make mine because they are not my cup of tea. I've tried to like F. Scott Fitzgerald but we just never got on. On the Road goes off the road for me.

The books that will move you, inspire you, make you cry, make you think, make you laugh. Even if you read them in high school or college, you'll have a different perspective on them now that you're Out In The World. Trust m. Cassondra Gresl.

Tom Jones is a classic English novel that captures the spirit of its age and whose famous characters have come to represent Augustan society in all its loquacious, turbulent, comic variety. 6. The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by Laurence Sterne (1759). Laurence Sterne’s vivid novel caused delight and consternation when it first appeared and has lost little of its original bite. 7. Emma by Jane Austen (1816). Jane Austen’s Emma is her masterpiece, mixing the sparkle of her early books with a deep sensibility. 8. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley (1818). Mary Shelley’s first novel.

A book by director King Vidor. His career spanned the silent era (1913) until 1980. He worked in the most important, golden age of film. In 1929, when Al Jolson was performing in blackface, King Vidor was making "Hallelujah!" -- a major motion picture with an all African American cast showing them in a true light, not as previously seen in film. In 1925, when movies ran for one week and then disappeared, King wanted to make a movie that would play at least two weeks in New York city. He made "The Big Parade" which ran for 26 straight weeks in New York -- an unheard of feat at the time -- or now, for that matter. Watch the film, available on cd, and you'll see why. This book, "A Tree is a Tree" takes its title from what a studio boss told the young King Vidor. King wanted to shoot his next movie on location is the part of the world where the story took place. He was told, "A rock is rock, a tree is a tree -- shoot it in Griffith Park." He took it as a lesson in film making. If you are a film buff, this is a must have.

Well written
  • Kazigrel
Great book, covers history of early Hollywood and one of its greatest directors.
  • Perongafa
A breezy read through the silent era and golden years of Hollywood. Vidor was a great director who worked skillfully in silent films and talkies, his book chronicles the journey. Some valuable nuggets but not as in depth and cutting as you would want. Vidor was a gentleman and gracefully avoided naming names or pointing fingers. If your a fan of old movies and you enjoy reading bios this is a must read, but there are many others to start with.
