Ishmael
    #2875718 - 07/10/04 12:53 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I have heard so many people that I love and respect rave about this book.



I didn't like it. I didn't even finish it because I felt that Daniel Quinn was treating me like a total idiot. Am I the only one that feels this way about Ishmael?


Flame away! Or agree!

This might be more suited for the Music, Art, and Literature forum. :wink:

I think this is fine for this forum

I thought it was an interesting book, but the actions of those around me caused me to be very skeptical of it. Basically everyone I knew that read it, trated it like the fucking bible. If you hadn't read ishmael, you weren't worth talking to about anything. They thought they knew it all.

Pisses me off the way people are today.... anything that questions the status quo is automatically idolized and worshipped, regardless of it's accuracy. People simply are not as skeptical as they should be about stuff they want to hear.

The first time I read it I didn't enjoy it. The second time, I loved it.

I think it helps if you can form your own ideas based off of the ones that are presented in the book.
