What, in your opinion, is the best book that you haven’t liked? Mind you, I don’t mean your most-hated book–oh, no. I mean the most accomplished, skilled, well-written, impressive book that you just simply didn’t like.
Like, for movies–I can acknowledge that Citizen Kane is a tour de force and is all sorts of wonderful, cinematically speaking, but . . . I just don’t like it. I find it impressive and quite an accomplishment, but it’s not my cup of tea.
So . . . what book (or books) is your Citizen Kane?
Well I would have to say mine would be the following:
- Love In The Time of Cholera by Gabriel Marquez-I just could not finish this book.
- Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand-another one that I couldn’t finish.
I tried and I know both of these books are supposed to be amazing pieces of literature but for me they were NOT.
What about you-what are yours?
