Okay, lets use books out of copyright and judge ourselves. Thanks for restarting this thread, I completely forgot about it. I'll post up the choices for first book , and choose a paragraph at random. Please vote for your choice!

Far Fom The Madding Crowd - Thomas Hardy
Crime and Punishment - Foydor Dostoevsky
David Copperfield - Charles Dickens

Okay, begin to vote!

Hmm, maybe. I think we need to remind people of this thread though, and then people can agree or disagree to crtique it. However, I think something a bit more modern, as Charles Dickens wrote far differently from the way we write today, therefore we would end up completely changing the context of the book.

Your three choices are all classical, so we'd be changing them in every part. Nonetheless, I pick David Copperfield of those choices.

I want you to do this with Paolini or Meyer. Everyone would get involved, and we'd get to rip the thing to shreds, discovering exactly how we don't want to write. And it would be immensely fun.
