    "I thought this would go over my head. The thing about Dostoyevsky is that he wants you to understand his pt. It's not subtle. He rally drives it home and it's repetitious. But other than that it's really intelligent and a stone cold classic, any way you slice it. The ethics and morality that the brother's experience is crazy, y'all."

    "If you want to read all of Lisa Simpson's favorite books, I think this is one of the best. Dickinson is a classic of the poetry genre and highly recommended. She has a timeless way with words that are easily accessible for people just starting out with the genre, I think. "

    "Sense and Sensibility is a brilliant work by Jane Austen that is part of the Lisa Simpson book club. The characters are developed through dialogue, and you feel as if you're part of their conversation. The romance unfolds, and everyone gets a happy ending. This book is a classic, with wit, and strong female characters: sisters that fall in love and have their heart broken. While it's a classic story, people can still relate, today."
