This is an interesting yet difficult question for me to answer seeing how I went to a French school. Most of the books that I read you’ve probably never even heard of unless you’re francophone. My English classes were a joke. I remember writing my language entrance exam for college and some of the questions went a little like this:
1. A blind man can not:
2. What colour is an orange?
Ridiculous, right? Needless to say, I made it into the advanced French class…
Anyway, I only read a handful of English books in high school and most of them were grade school level. My English teacher used to ask me to translate words for him. I could have taught the class, seriously. This week’s question is asking me to really dig into my memory archives (a side effect of being 30) and the only two books that I’ve managed to come up with are Lord of the Flies by William Golding and The Tale of the Body Thief by Anne Rice. I remember the latter vividly because when “thief” is pronounced with a French accent it comes out as “teeth”. It took me several classes to figure out what the heck my teacher was talking about. Heuh, someone is stealing teeth? What kind of story is this!?
What about you?
