The Contenders: Page 2

21 Moby Dick - Herman Melville

I haven't read the book myself, but my mom said she had to read it in high school and said the first 19 chapters are about blubber. The 20th chapter had no 👎 plot... I don't think I will be reading this anytime soon, - Untildawn8

22 Twilight

ALL of them

23 Silent Spring (Rachel Carson)

About halfway through this book I was falling asleep and going insane and I couldn't take it any more. I just had to put it down. sorry, great message, but its just in an unreadable format.

This book is not a book but a giant pamphlet to tell of the dangers of pollution which is good and all but nothing to keep someone entertained and that what books are supposed to do right?

25 Stargirl

I physically cannot bring myself to read this book.

I had to read this book for English class and I felt bad because the entire time, I just wanted the old man to die already so the book would end.
