Most Overrated Books


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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.

62 Witch and Wizard

This book was so hyped-up, and it was just such a disappointment. The book was too dark for younger readers, but too bland for older readers. "Dystopian Fluff." Seems like and oxymoron. However, if you read this book cover to cover, you will realize that this describes it perfectly. The worst part is that it seems like everyone else loves it.

63 Like Water for Chocolate - Laura Esquivel
64 The Aeneid - Virgil
65 Tears of a Tiger

So expected, and where he Kills himself, he mentiones both a rifle and a shotgun. What, Did he get up and go get another gun? Total crap

66 The Call of the Wild - Jack London
67 The Chronicles of Narnia - CS Lewis
68 The Inheritance Cycle - Christopher Paolini

Too criminally underrated

69 The Shining - Stephen King

I honestly thought the movie based on the book was better.

70 The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien
71 The Lorax - Dr. Seuss
72 The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - John Boyne

I know the book was OKAY but I put this here because I feel it's getting more credit than it actually deserves
