Huh? I don't know what that is.
The rightmost DJ category, END OF STORY. The correct responses were Of Mice and Men, Frankenstein, "The Lottery," A Clockwork Orange, and Gilead. I can also only claim two (probably the two shortest ones). Edit: Well, one, really; the other isn't a novel.

Frankenstein and A Clockwork Orange here. Neither assigned in class.
The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.

I read them all, but that didn't help on Gilead, since I first thought of another Robinson novel, Housekeeping, made into a movie, and I totally missed the balm TOM...I didn't care for it as much as Ken does, and much of the literary world. It's about a preacher and his theological struggles...

Oh, right. I've read the first three. I've seen the movie for A Clockwork Orange, so generally know enough about that to answer most clues that come up about it.

We read A Clockwork Orange in English class. Not only that, but our teacher took us on a field trip where we all rode our bikes to a nearby theater and watched the movie. In a lot of states nowadays, she would probably be serving a prison sentence.

She could share a cell with my English teacher, who took our middle school class to see Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet. :lol:

Huh, that article mentions someone whose child I was taking care of during the summer my J! run aired. I talked to him about it, and he told me he had won $40,000 on Greed and he paid for his wedding with it. I'm not saying his name here, but here's an archived recap of his game (the second one on the page), in which they spelled his last name wrong.

Your (high school?) teacher took your class to see a movie that was rated X? Man, the early '70s were a different time.

Looking it up, it was originally released as an X, but Kubrick cut 30 seconds and it was re-released as an R. I'm pretty sure we saw the R version, which was still a pretty hard R.
