THE SLOW READER PROJECT
Inspired by the Backlisted podcast, I've decided to read twelve classic novels this year and record my impressions in the form of short, irreverent book reviews. My only rule: the books must be considered by the general public to be classics of western literature, and they have to be written by authors I've never read before. I will be focusing on how these books met or failed to meet or surpassed my expectations. I'll be looking at story structure, prose style, voice, and whatever else comes to mind.
