Top Ten Books Everyone Has Heard of but No One Has Read

There are certain books that everyone has heard of but has probably never had any interest in reading.

The Top Ten

1 The Diary of Anne Frank The Diary of Anne Frank Product Image

Unlike most people, I've read this book (actually, I read 'The diary of a young girl' but it was the same) and such a shame not a lot of people read it. There is so many copies in my school, and I know only about five people who read it. It is a truly remarkable book, and I enjoyed how brave and mature she was, and how she dieed at the end because of sickness was so sad.

I have read this book several times, it is heartwrenching. It's too bad more people don't actually read it. When we forget our history, we are doomed to repeat it.

I have read this book and it's just so wonderful and beautifully written that I couldn't stop reading it!

I read it. I only read like half of it though.

2 The Bible The Bible Product Image

I don't think too many people have read the whole of this book.
I have probably read less than twenty "proper" books in my life (not a fan of reading) but I have read The Odyssey, The Illiad, The Catcher in the Rye, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Animal Farm. Weird!

People don't read it because why would a book that holds the future and truth but it is cheap MILLION DOLLARS! Also it because of how long the book is

I don't read the Bible all at once. Rather, I read a little fraction each day. I know I'll finish eventually...

I read the bible cause I am Christain. I barely read 306 pages. The bible is too long but I will somehow finish reading it.

3 Webster's Dictionary Webster's Dictionary Product Image

I JUST spent fifteen minutes strait asking people if they read the dictionary for fun (we had time to kill in algebra) and that is so entertaining, most people say What? , but you do get some surprising answers.

No one reads the Dictionary, but everyone knows who Webster is.

Who would even read a dictionary. ITs easier to just go to dictionary.com. and type the word you want to know the meaning of.

AHAHAAH THIS TOTALLY CRACKED ME UP! LOL

4 The Catcher in the Rye The Catcher in the Rye Product Image

Although not my style (I like fantasy - Lord of the Rings, etc. ) I've read it and it's definitely one of the best books ever! Every teen should reed it.

I've read this and it's amazing. One of the best books ever written.

A book supposedly popular among serial killers...

Yes, I'm guilty. I have not read this book.

5 The Odyssey The Odyssey Product Image

The longest poem ever written.

I read it and loved it!

6 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer The Adventures of Tom Sawyer Product Image

Hey, I love this book, but your right only five percent of people who talk about it have actually read it. And most peaple think it is about him tricking other people to do his work but that was only like one page. Most of it is about Injun Joe trying to kill them.

Read it in class. Loved it to death.

7 War and Peace War and Peace Product Image

Everyone knows its long. But naturally that means no one has read it. Lazy culture of today I guess.

8 Animal Farm Animal Farm Product Image

Everyone should read this though

I've read a lot of these.

I read it in 10th grade.

About the Russian revolution, as well as the France AND with hidden messages regarding about WW2 and a book for all vegans and even non too I guess

9 The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Product Image
10 The Exorcist The Exorcist Product Image

most people just watch the movie

The Contenders

11 Great Expectations Great Expectations Product Image

It's a shame more people haven't read this. It's entertaining, and a wonderfully told story.

Of course I have..many times I loved it and travelled it...

I readit, it's brilliant.

12 The Necronomicon The Necronomicon Product Image
13 Moby Dick Moby Dick Product Image

Everybody in my school laughs at the title...

14 Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet Product Image

Wait I thought it was a play script not a book.

15 The Illiad The Illiad Product Image

Never again. I will never touch this book again in my life.

Almost as long as the Odyssey.

Almost as long as the "Illiad"

Sort of the Greek Bible

16 The Day of the Locust The Day of the Locust Product Image
17 In Search of Lost Time In Search of Lost Time Product Image
18 The Art of War The Art of War Product Image

Great book. Goes over how the opponent and you are one, It is not about besting the opponent, but besting yourself before you meet an opponent. 10/10 would definitely read it again.

19 To Kill a Mockingbird To Kill a Mockingbird Product Image

I've read this before

20 The Lord of the Rings The Lord of the Rings Product Image
21 Ulysses Ulysses Product Image
22 The Crucible The Crucible Product Image

About the Salem Witch Trials...

23 A Separate Peace A Separate Peace Product Image

Again, I've read most of these.

24 Lolita Lolita Product Image
