When we read those books in school, I never enjoyed them. As an adult, I would like to revisit them and learn to appreciate them. Any pointers for someone who is used to reading murder mysteries and YA Fiction?

I've red this book when I was a little boy and loved it.
What a wonderful event to have made a reality show

I read this book last year, and it’s amazing. Initially I was a bit distracted by all the technical details of fishing, but as the story progresses the mood turns more gray and gets really interesting. I can read the book again and I am sure I will have a different take on the story.
