I thought the writing was decent....the writing in Catcher in the Rye on the other hand was absolutely terrible!!!

My favorite book was To Kill a Mockingbird. If you actually take the time to read it and understand it, it's really great heart
I think it has a good message, but it's still horribly written.
Never had to read that.

Catcher in the Rye (Sophomore Year) was terrible. It was by far the most boring thing I've ever been forced to read.


Well that's an uncommon view. I didn't hate the book per se. I just didn't find it deep at all or meaningful. It's about a whining, complaining rich kid and nothing more. I hated Holden. He needed a good ol' fashion smacking.

Timid Darling

American Born Chinese in 11th grade. It was a fun book, but it felt like a completely waste of time. Especially since we spent months analyzing it, but I finished it during study hall.
I wanted to read something compelling, not a comic about teaching children to accept themselves.

A Wrinkle in Time wasn't so bad to me. Kinda weird when they started describing IT, but eh.

I hated Frankenstein in 9th grade. It droned on forever, it was creepy, and it just wasn't that interesting to me. I like our modern version of Frankenstein better. emotion_donotwant

In college, we just finished Devil's Highway. It was morbid, haunting, and boyish with the use of words. Illegal immigrants dying in the desert...Fun.

Because I'm a teacher, and I read BB books all the time. However, my kids are 4-5, not in high school. sweatdrop
The Scarlet Letter, Beowulf, and Things fall apart (because I moved in high school I had to read the last one twice)
oh I totally repressed Paridise Lost from my memory! British Lit class just sucked for me in general. emotion_donotwant
