My English 239 class is reading A Thousand Acres. I finished it last night, and while I expected to hate it because it is a modern retelling of King Lear, and I HATE King Lear, it's actually really, really good, and you don't have to have read King Lear to appreciate it.
My class's discussion of it is driving me a little bit crazy - there are only 6 people in my class and 4 of them appear to be complete morons - so I thought I'd pass this recommendation along in the hopes of finding other people to discuss it with.
