Well, naming the five worst reads is fairly easy because I really hated
every page of Nietzsche I slogged through, And Stirner was awful too.
Surprisingly, I hated Schopenhauers Philosophy even though I loved his
Studies in Pessimism. So here are my bottom five:
Nietzsche Thus Spake Zarathustra 009.1
Nietzsche Beyond Good and Evil 020.1
Stirner Ego & His Own 049.1
Nietzsche Geneology of Morals 062.1
Schopenhauer Philosophy 052.2
Now the top five are harder to identify because I loved so many of them.
Just glancing over the list here's five that I loved so much I read again
at least one other time:
Carroll Alice In Wonderland 079.1
Daudet Sapho 085.1
Flaubert Madame Bovary 028.1
Hudson Green Mansions 089.1
Joyce Prtrt of Artist as Y M 145.1
But it's unfair to not mention Lawrence and DeMaupassant and so many
others who I really loved. I used a "Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor" rating
system in my records. Of the 175 MLs I have in my list, 61 are rated
excellent, 70 are rated good, 32 are rated fair and only 18 are rated
