There are so many crappy biographies … would you rather read a poorly-written biography of a fascinating life, OR an exquisitely well-written, wonderful read of one of a not-so-interesting life?

I really don’t know how to answer this question because I am not sure that I have ever read a biography.  I think that there are pros and cons to both.  I think that not-so-interesting lives are sometimes more interesting in that action packed lives.  I feel like I connected more with ordinary people.

What do you think?

    You should try to read a biography, just pick some one whom you think changed the world for the good and see if you can find a biography of their life. Then let us know what you think. My answer is here: http://edwardsgranddaugther.blogspot.com/2011/07/there-are-so-many-crappy-biographies.html

    Read many because I homeschool My Boys.

  • This is an interesting question. I have read several biographies and memoirs. I can’t think of any that I’ve read that I didn’t enjoy. Maybe it’s just because I picked ones that were about people or things I wanted to know about. So I guess this goes on my belief that to me, a well-written book is one that I enjoy reading and grabs my attention.

    I too feel more connected with ordinary people as well!

  • I don’t like not finishing a book, so it must be exciting to make me WANT to finish it. If it isn’t, every page feels like a chapter.
