- Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain -Twain was quoted for saying “Every time I read “Pride and Prejudice” I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone.” Well, Twain, every time i read any of your work, I want to bash your skull in. This work was the most tedious, boring, and racist work I have ever read.
- Tess of the D’urbervilles by Thomas Hardy –While I was reading this I was thinking, “why does he hate women?” This is one of the most depressing books I’ve ever read. But I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. I’m interested in reading Far From the Madding Crowd so maybe my opinion of him will improve.
- Great Expectations by Charles Dickens –I want to lump all Dickens’ work except The Christmas Carol in this category. I feel this one was unnecessarily long. But I want to read A Tale of Two Cities so I think I’m going to give him one more chance.
- Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad-*Shaking my head* I just…can’t. This is the worst of them all. I had to force myself to keep my open.
- The Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins -There are probably a lot of people who can’t believe I’m even suggesting this series. But I just couldn’t really get into it. The narrative was incomprehensible. It’s not that I don’t like Katniss, she’s a great role model. But there were times I wanted to take the bow and arrow and kill Katniss myself so we can make the games and the story go by a little faster.
