Which one of these ten banned books have you read, and do you really think there was a legitimate reason for the book to be banned?
I’ve read Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. I absolutely love Brave New World — it was inventive, interesting and had a really great plot. We had to read it in Grade 11 and I finished far earlier than everyone else. I understand why it was banned, because it covered a lot of topics that people would find inappropriate. But even with the mature subject matter, I still enjoyed it. The Grapes of Wrath, on the other hand, was a really difficult book for me to go through. I found it so dry in Grade 12, and I ended up “dozing off” at most parts of it. So I can’t really say if I agree with its banning, because I don’t even remember most of the book anymore. I want to read it again, but when I’ve got nothing better to do and when I have a better feeling about it.
