Always Do the Reading
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend it if you love to read and want to see how the writing style of novels has changed over the years. Working from Austen to Hornby and many authors in-between the whole course it an examination of the novels. You need plenty of free time to be able to keep up with the readings, but in general it is really fun.
I really enjoyed the talks about each of the books talking about how much we really didn’t care for Mrs. Bennet or the youngest sister. Each class Dr. Zelman would bring in a new aspect to the novels that we would examine and talk about and it was always very interesting.

Advice for students:
My advice is do the reading because you’re graded on your participation in the discussions and it is really hard to be a part of the discussion if you are not caught up with the readings. Be prepared to not get the best grades on the papers because he is a very harsh grader.
