That was uncalled for. If I said something to offend you, then I apologize. However, everyone has different opinions. Just because mine do not agree with yours doesn't mean I'm unintelligent, nor does it give you the right to prejudge me. If you happen to like those novels, well, good for you. That's your opinion, and I respect it. I would appreciate it if you showed me the same courtesy.
OH DEAR, WAS IT SOMETHING I SAID? ________________________________________________________________ Oh, how I've longed for this day...
The fact of the matter is that most people who fail to see the brilliance in those novels are unintelligent. Brave New World is a difficult read, admittedly, but others should in no way be discouraged from reading it just because their peers are too close-minded to understand it.
________________________________________________________________ ...the day I might finally cast away this mask to reveal my true self.
I tried so hard to read The Odyssey. I even tried a couple of years after the first attempt, but it was all for naught.
Weirdly enough I seemed to enjoy The Iliad a bit more, but I couldn't finish that either.
Princess Academy I don't remember the author, but I do remember there were several candidates to be the reigning Prince's arranged marriage.
I identified somewhat with the main character who was a normal girl with a bit of smarts.
But... I felt the twist coming at the end, it felt too rushed, and all the characters were too bland for my taste...
Two for Sorrow, One for Joy was a horrible book. It was filled with bad writing techniques and horrible cliches, along with an overdose of "whatever the hero does, he's still good, whatever the villian does, he's still evil."
Too much passive voice as well, and several times I just wanted to take a red pen to it. I eventually did that, but my friend stole the book before I could get very far.
Breaking Dawn--I didn't exactly love the first three books, but I liked them enough to continue following the series. This one, however, was atrocious. I don't remember if it's 600 or 700 pages, but it's a gigantic waste of paper & after finishing it I just kind of sat there & wondered why on Earth I had bothered to finish that crap.
The Old Man & The Sea--Was supposed to read it freshman year & didn't. Was supposed to read it again for AP Lit & once again I didn't. Soo boring.
Little Women--It's one of those books I've read the first few chapters of many times but have never been able to finish.
The Sound & The Fury--Truthfully, I only got about 20 pages in before i gave up on it. Probably not far enough to judge a whole book, but eh. I had no interest in continuing.
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn--Couldn't deal with the writing style. I remember reading about 100 pages in one sitting & then discovering that I hadn't comprehended any of it.
Catch 22--Made it about ten chapters in. Guess it wasn't terrible, I just didn't have the patience or attention span to try to follow it.
Pride & Prejudice--Just boring. Didn't get very far at all.
The Metamorphosis--Also boring. Only good thing about it was that it was only like 60 pages.
Hamlet---Although that's probably mostly because I hated my AP Lit teacher(with the exception of Breaking Dawn, Little Women, and Huck Finn all of these books were for AP Lit)..for this one he had us follow along in the book as we were watching the movie & it was just really annoying to try to read and watch a movie at the same time. ><
I actually loved The Catcher in The Rye, but maybe just because it was so much easier to get through than Huck Finn was(both of them were for sophomore English). I liked Animal Farm, but was on the edge about 1984--the beginning bored me a lot, I pretty much skipped that "book within the book", and after that I finally started to sort of like it.
All 4 book in the Twilight series scream My goodness I hated those books. Sadly I'm one of those people that has to finish a book or the complete series just to see how it ends, luckily I stopped myself from reading Breaking Dawn, I said "NO MORE" and I didn't really finished Eclipse, cuz it was just so bad.
My niece told me most of Breaking Dawn and I'm convinced that Stephanie Meyers was an some sort of drug when she wrote it lol
The Jeanine frosty Crappy Vampire series (not what it's really called, but It might as well be) It's basically a poor rendition of Buffy, and the main dude is litterally spike. I'm not even joking, same discription, accent, age and everything. It was just sad -_-
Some people have no imaginations >.<
Or they do, but what they think up is just...Bleh.
