Re: Have you ever got really angry/offended at a book?

Well, a lot of the books that we read in English class (like the Classics) tend to be rather offensive against race/religion/gender (all those racial slurs/sexist statements/mocking religion/beliefs!) .
I realize we only read them to appreciate/understand the more positive aspects of the book so I try to ignore the offensive parts and keep my perspective analytical which, I suppose, is the best thing to do when you come across situations like that. Also, most of those books are old so they do help me to realize all that society had/has to overcome! Another good thing to remember when you get offended by a book is that its just an opinion and not (as someone already said) truth/fact.
