Today's topic is "Books I Had to Read in School and Didn't Like." I was a literature major so there were a lot of books I had to read. Fortunately, I'm a very eclectic reader but there were still some of the books we were assigned I just couldn't get into. In no particular order, some that I remember:
1. John Steinbeck's East of Eden and The Grapes of Wrath. His books are just so depressing.
2. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Funnily enough I watched a film of this when I was older and really enjoyed it. I might have to try to read this one again.
3. The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. I know it's all symbolic, but roaches ::::shudder::::
Those are the only ones I can remember off the top of my head that I didn't like. I enjoyed most of my classes (American Lit was my favorite, except for Steinbeck
What about you? Are there any books you remember not liking from school?
