Which books could you not stand?
Or better yet, which books did you read... then realize that you really didn't need to waste your time with?

I personally did not enjoy Gone with the Wind or The Phantom Tollbooth, though I know that they are generally thought of as good classics.

What about you?

Now, I loved The Phantom Tollbooth. But, I did first hear the audio version first...

Pride and Prejudice. Don't waste your time in 18th Century soap-operas. :shame:

*sputters* :shame: =P I love Jane Austen.

Hm... Let's see... the Twilight Saga, for one. Another one called The Talisman, though I don't know who wrote it. The Children of Hurin, JRR Tolkien.

I've recommended The Phantom Tollbooth several times, in the past few weeks. It's definitely one of my favorites. Some of the word plays are priceless. \:D/

Moby Dick. :x

I have to read that for AP Lit... ???? And you've never heard of Odyssey being a soap-opera? :- ;)

I can't think of any I didn't like... ???? I'd have to be home to honestly search for even one....

One book I can remember not liking was Great Expectations, by Charles Dickens. We had to read it our senior year of high school - I don't even remember the details of the book now, but it was one of the most depressing and pointless stories I've read. :-

I read Great Expectations for a college lit class, and I actually didn't mind it. It was depressing at times, but I found the story interesting and did enjoy following the events that happened and trying to figure out what would happen. The original ending was supposed to be more depressing than the alternative ending that Dickens ended up using, so be thankful for that, Laura. ;)

That's something at least! \:D/

And maybe I would have a different opinion of it if I read it now...but I can never bring myself to pick it up again. :p
