Topic.

Can't find it anywhere on google. I was thinking of reading it and "Grapes and Wrath" for the ENG4U1 ISU/ISP.

Too short for an ISP, the book has to be 250-500 pages long in my school.

I read a stupid 550 page book, and a 450 page book, they weren't even good. And I got a sh*t English mark too.

It's usually around 100+ pages.
It's a great book. I always bawl when I read the ending ):

Same. Still, Grapes of Wrath is like 600 pages, so 700 pages in total. I mean, 2 books at 350 pages each is the same total duration. Hopefully my ENG teacher will see this and let me use the two.

Thanks people.

If your teacher lets you do this they're retarded. That's like comparing HP7 with Humpty Dumpty, they average out to ~300 pages.

Length is only one thing, you have to look for 4U reading skill appropriateness.

Fair enough.

I've reconsidered and chosen Scarlet Letter and Picture of Dorian Gray. The themes seem to similar. Can someone give me some input on this, would you reccomend them? I like the fact that they explore themes on the nature of evil, identity and society, etc.

EDIT: Also, how much did the length of the books factor into your mark?

I'm reading Dorian Gray for my novel study. For my ISP I'm thinking of doing 1984 and A Modern Utopia. Also, I really doubt the length matters too much in the mark, if it's a longer book it'll be easier to find more points to compare to (or at least, that's how my teacher explained it).
