Avid Readers Share The Books They Wish Were Written By Other Authors

Sometimes covers, revivals and remakes top the original. A new spin on a classic can be the best way to make it fresh for a new generation or... it can be an UTTER disaster. It all depends on the person swinging the pen. Who hasn't wondered what classic authors could do with re-imagining the world's greatest tales?

Redditor _gham1 asked around to see who could best "cover" current author's works by asking... _If authors 'covered' novels, the way musicians cover songs, which covered novel would you be most excited to read?

Tao Te Ching - George carlin

"Knowing who is an f-ING moron is intelligence; knowing that you aren't an f-ing moron is true wisdom."

"Those who know how life works do not speak. Those who speak are often corn-hole eating mouth breathers that deserve to be tossed into a volcano."

WILL WOULD BE PROUD!

Romeo and Juliet by Lemony Snicket.

Dear Viewer,

If you entered this play with the hopes of seeing a light comedy, you would be better off searching elsewhere. This story may begin like a light comedy, when Romeo and Juliet meet and dance at Masquerade Ball, but don't be mistaken. If you know anything about the Montagues and Capulets, then you will know that no friendship between them will last.

In fact, within these scenes, the couple must deal with the horrors of murderous in-laws, poisonous drinks, poetry, and mail arriving late.

I am bound to tell the story of these tragic events, but you are free to exit this theatre and go to A Midsummer Night's Dream next week.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket
