haha I was about to start this thread

The Old Man and the Sea, I just do not get it. I did really enjoy the Sun Also Rises so I’m not a total Hemingway hater.

Also, Frankenstein. Soooooo looooong

Can I say All Of Them? Seriously… there wasn’t a book in High School I remotely liked. Especially when they whipped out the Odyssy. Shoot me now! I love reading. I just hated all the “classics” I guess. In Jr High I did read the Scarlet Letter and liked that though…

A Separate Peace by John Knowles.  So boring.  So very, very boring.

Catch 22 and Sophie’s World. Oh, and Anthem by Ayn Rand. I wanted to throw that book against the wall!

The Heart of Darkness.  Had to read it in 12th grade AP Lit.  I seriously had 20 sticky notes on each page with vocab just so I could understand it.  I love the classics and need to start reading more (when I get time)

HEART OF DARKNESS. Oh my gawd. And Things Fall Apart. Any book about British imperialism, really.

ETA- @LovebirdsSC: Great minds, I swear. We had an abbreviated senior year because of Hurricane Katrina and we covered that horrible book in about two weeks. Needless to say, I didn’t write about it on the AP test.

It’s a tie between Heart of Darkness and Scarlet Letter.  Shoot me now.

Call of the Wild. God, reading that book in 7th grade was like pulling teeth for me. The Scarlet Letter was boring too. Hmmmm… Beowulf too.

I swear, I love literature but I have limits.
