] The problem is that, except for Conrad, Forster and Faulkner, I don't feel like reading the any other in the list.
] BTW, I think that Point Counter Point could be an interesting group read; and I would like to read it again myself, it's more than 10 years since went through it.
Point Counter Point is a text which was originally set for a Lit. course I'm (maybe) doing this semester,"Twentieth Century literature" but it was cut due to the lack of availability(In Australia at least?) and repalced by a D.H.Lawrence short story. I, too, would like to read it sometime if I could get hold of it from a library or whatever. I've read BNW and Antic Hay, both of which I quite enjoyed. I took me two tries to like BNW, but then I didn't read the whole thing first up, just bits and snatches. My professor said something like: Huxley is more of an "ideas" writer, than a "writer". I sort of agree.
Another text on the list is ARWAV. This makes it quite tempting.
