Most Overrated Books


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Animal Farm - George Orwell
42 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J.K. Rowling

Each Harry Potter book + the characters deserve all the glory they get, roll in it until they smell like glory, eat it, become famous for it, break a record for most glory ever, marry glory, have kids with glory, become old with glory, and DIE with GLORY! Harry Potter is friggen' awesome and has taught me that love and friendship is the most powerful thing on earth and can conquer death. Thank you.

I like the series, but I find this final book a bit of a mess.

43 A Confederacy of Dunces - John Kennedy Toole

This should be number one. For all the talk of how this is the "funniest novel ever written", it is completely boring. Reading it was like being constipated. You just wanted it over. There is no "there" there.

44 The Circle - David Eggers
45 Go Set a Watchman - Harper Lee

What a truly cynical marketing con this book turned out to be. Harper Lee wrote one great novel, and that should have been the end of the story, but some literary lowlifes conspired to sully "Mockingbird" with this pathetic epilogue.

46 1984 - George Orwell

This book was so long and tortuous to read. I still don't understand how people think that it was in anyway a good book. I wouldn't wish having to read this book on my worst enemies.

Sorry, but no. This is one of the top three best of all time. - Caleb9000

I think this book is good, but not the best. Animal Far is better. - NymeriaWaters

47 The Giver - Lois Lowry V 1 Comment
48 Captain Underpants - Dav Pilkey
49 The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Mark Twain
50 Ida B. . . and Her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster, and (Possibly) Save the World - Katherine Hannigan

It can't be overrated because nobody knows about it. I's more underrated than overrated. - Starsparks

The title basically tells the whole story

51 Walk Two Moons - Sharon Creech V 1 Comment
52 Love, Stargirl - Jerry Spinelli
53 Beowulf

Hard to read especially in Old English.

54 The Lorax - Dr. Seuss
55 Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health - L. Ron Hubbard V 1 Comment
56 Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia - Kendall and Kylie Jenner
57 Don Quixote - Miguel de Cervantes
58 The Cat In the Hat - Dr. Seuss

This is for KIDS, for goodness sake! Children (and people who were once children) love it, so how can it be overrated?

See my comment on the Grinch...

59 How the Grinch Stole Christmas! - Dr. Seuss
60 Winnie the Pooh - A.A. Milne
