What's Your (literary) Poison?


It's no secret that I love to read. Love to. There have been a few books over the years that I have come to really truly hate. Numero uno on that list is Moby Dick. I've read (or rather ploughed through) it twice. I didn't just read that book once. Oh no, I gave it another chance. Still hated it. The Sea Wolf, by Jack London - yuk. The captain is not nearly as nice as Ahab (see: Moby Dick). Martin Chuzzlewit. Least favorite book by Charles Dickens. I have to admit that I have only read it once...so I might have to give it another go sometime. Not really looking forward to it.

What's your poison?

Great Expectations (Pip?!), Little Women (just the end--Amy shouldda come to a grisly demise), The Sound and the Fury (I just didn't get the fuss)...

East of Eden. Ugh, first book I couldn't finish.

The Hobbit. I have gotten to page 100 (or less) 5 times. There is just no way. Blah! The Portrait of Dorian Grey ranks right up there too! How many pages does it take to discribe a painting!?!
