I expect that I will garner some flack for the following selection of titles, but here goes and in no particular order:

 

*Lord of the Flies - William Golding

*To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee

*The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald

*Romeo & Juliet, as well as Macbeth - William Shakespeare - Actually, anything written by Shakespeare

*Picnic at Hanging Rock - Joan Lindsey

 

It's not so much that I think these titles are inherently boring or bad, but rather, I believe high school English classes have ruined them. At least, for me, they did.

 

Honourable mention to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I mean, I enjoyed reading them, but they are so incredibly dry and I couldn't in good faith recommend them to anyone.

To add in my thought...

Tess of the d'Ubervilles by Thomas Hardy

-Great social commentary...great story? no not at all. The ending was so anti climatic, the author focused 4 pages on a field rather than the death. The main character was so fake and unbelievable too.

 

Jane Eyre....

-There was like no plot....

You could learn about who Ray Bradbury is in his biography, which just so happens to be a book.

Romeo and Juliet. Mother of god, they made us read that book in grade 9 and then again in grade 10. To be fair, I had changed high schools but still...

 

The Outsiders was ok but that was back in grade 7 when I read often.

 

Lord of the Flies.....hated it.

 

1984. I found it tolerable near the end but it was hard to get into.

 

Hamlet. Macbeth.

 

Myriad of other books that I don't even remember at this point.

 

Ray Bradbury....Fahrenheit 451

You need to read the blurb following those particular choices to understand why it gets mentioned. I still think Lord of the Flies is a literary masterpiece regardless.

Atlas Shrugged. I don't even care about Rand's bullsh*t philosophy, the writing in this book is sh*t.

Pretty much. I think that had I not read it in a school setting, especially in the way that it was read i.e. people in the class reading paragraphs one by one....then I'd have enjoyed it a lot more.

The Scarlet Letter was a pile of feces.

 

One Flew Over the nice personoo's Nest is the best piece of literature ever, with no competition.

Catcher in the Rye.

 

 

...Was a really good book that everyone seems to hate. But to be honest, as much as I enjoy reading sometimes I can never bring myself to read most the books our highschool wants us to read. I have no doubt that they are technically great, but I want to read what I want to read, not what they want me to.

Agreed, I loved that book.

 

If I had to pick one...I think maybe Grapes of Wrath, though I'm not sure if it was the book itself, or my English teacher that made it awful.

Oliver Twist was pretty awful. I gave up less than halfway through. Oliver Twist is a poor orphan, he inspires disgust in the Victorian people, Oliver Twist is a poor orphan, he inspires disgust in the Victorian people, Oliver Twist discovers The Artful Dodger and Master Bates with him, Oliver Twist is a poor orphan, he inspires disgust in the Victorian people, Oliver Twist is a poor orphan, he inspires disgust in the Victorian people.

 

Worst book I read for school was Frankenstein. It's twelve pages of exposition, thirty pages of what would make a nice short story, and a hundred and fifty pages of whining.

I'd have to go with the dictionary.

 

The plot is terrible, it's just a series of basic descriptions that don't go anywhere.

Anything Shakespeare. Sorry, but I just can't grasp onto the early modern English. We did watch Romeo and Juliet in 9th grade, though, and it had boobies.

Man, did your life gave meaning to you?

 

Well not to be off-topic, I think the book Twilight. Sorry, but I don't really give a f*ck about fantasy over love and reality etc. I just can't seem to enjoy it that much.
