Everyone has had to read a book but despised it, please tell me what book and why you disliked it?
In high school I had to read "The Oxbow Incident" for English class. It was not at all a book I would have chosen. To be honest I don't remember much about it other than I think it involved a hanging.
Actually I've never heard of this book so obviously it was awful. I hated that we had to read a wrinkle in time because it was so boring to me.
Really? Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books. It's funny how everyone's taste is different.
I had to read the Red Badge of Courage in high school. It was a fictional book with footnotes and the teacher tested more on the footnotes than the story.
I do not read as much as I should and one of the reasons is that teacher--she took the joy out of reading by worrying to much about the relatively unimportant details. Many a good book has been condensed by either Reader's Digest or a good screen writer. Some authors get overly carried away with describing every detail.
I read the White Tiger by Aravind Adiga in 2009, though it won the Man Booker Prize the same year, the book failed to impress me. It was a sad satire of Indian economy, it made the depressing situation no better...
I remember in Junior High we had to read "Silas Marner". I don't remember a thing about it because I found it absolutely dull. I remember having to reread pages of it because I would totally tune out.
To this day it's become somewhat of a joke for me - if you need help falling asleep, pick up a copy of that book and you'll be asleep in no time.
