A recent post on Huffington Post Books listed five classic works of literature that are highly overrated. I clicked through the slideshow, feeling very excited that I might be vindicated in my recent dislike of a certain classic of the Russian variety. I felt that maybe if the Huffington Post publicly announces not enjoying Anna Karenina, then we could all let out a collective sigh of relief and relax in the knowledge that no one really likes the greatest novel ever written.
But alas, Anna Karenina was not on the list. Moby Dick was, my sister will be happy to hear. And also, The Catcher in the Rye, which I’m sure will give L-A a moment’s pause given her post of earlier today. (Maybe it’s time for a re-read?) In any event, I have now found five books that I will not be tackling this year or, if I’m being honest, ever.
