    One of my all time favourite films as a kid

    Anyway, looks like you have no choice on the matter so you might as well try and enjoy it.

    Why do you hate it so badly?

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Because it's stupid and makes no sense, lol. I don't like getting into books when I DON'T have the will power to read it. Who gives a rats ass about a boy named Oliver and a dick named Mr. Bumble? I just realized that most characters in the book were also in the movie "Oliver and company" LOL!

    Because that movie was based on the book....

    What type of book do you not find "stupid" or "boring?" Or do you just read because you're forced to in school?

    i guess it's just a gift. i haven't read a book in a whole year now, but just this last week we started a book (also in grade 10 english) called ahhum, drumroll please:

    "RAINBOW SIX" my english teacher got pregnant at the last minute so we have to listen to a stupid substitute, but hey, atleast he assigned a good book to us. I'm already on chapter 12! it's really a good book. so like i said. u either have the gift (liking to read), or don't (hate to read bcuz someone is forcing u too).

    Jeff Loomis: He's so good, he doesn't need to be dead to have a tribute.

    Well who cares if some spoiled high school student doesn't like it?

    Then don't read it and get an F.

    Oliver Twist ain't so bad! Did you have to read To Kill A Mockingbird? I had to read that in school and it turned out to be one of my all time favourite books.

    I think the majority of us read To kill A Mocking Bird. And you're right, it is a great book.

    Dickens didn't really write for minors (I don't know what age 10th grade is) but if your under 18 your teacher is expecting a lot unless she's given you an abridged copy, i know it's a fairly lite conversation but i think you've hit on something to, that it's little wonder people hate reading when their memories of it are reading books that they hated or didn't like, but maybe you reaction isn't too good either its okay you don't like the book what book do you like and if you gave your teacher suggestions would they maybe consequently try to make the class more relavent and aimed towards you and your peers or am i just talking a load of crap
