Help Me? I don't know what I'm reading...

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

As a rising senior in high school I am again facing a summer reading list. Below are the titles- anyone have input? I don't know very much about these titles/authors, except for Frankenstein (of course,) and Charles Dickens.

[U]The Heart of Darkness[/U]- Joseph Conrad
[U]Frankenstein[/U]- Mary Shelly
[U]Hard Times[/U]- Charles Dickens
[U]Ethan Frome[/U]- Edith Wharton
[U]Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man[/U]- James Joyce
[U]Invisible Man[/U]- Ralph Ellison
[U]All the King's Men[/U]- Robert Penn Warren

Thoughts, insights, and opinions about these books would be greatly appreciated. I'm a huge Palahniuk fan, and I've had a great time reading some of the titles recommended by the Cult. I've been amazed by the thoughtfulness and depth of discussion here, and I'd be grateful for any insight.
:) Thanks!
