    peripherally related-I did a fake book report on a fake book by John Updike around 5th grade or so, not realizing he was a famous author
    Teacher was either really dumb, or just gave me a pass...

    I am not being condescending. I am wondering why people can only reread what they read in high school.

    Same reason we put a Zep LP on the phono I guess.

    I re-read Dune 3 or 4 times.

    Familiarity...and it feels good.. known factors

    Food the same.

    I've read it several times at different points in my life, starting when I was around 12 years old.

    My understanding and appreciation for it changes and grows with each reading and as I and the world change.

    It's a lot like Animal Farm and 1984 in that way.

    I've read it years ago, I've also read Plague Dogs by the same author Richard Adams.

    I'm clairvoyant. The very next post from yours will be someone saying they've re-read it.

    It was a good book. I also enjoyed the movie, and the miniseries they had on Netflix last year.

    I read this book two years ago, really amazing. I asked around me and it seems that here in France nobody had ever heard about it (until Netflix).
