I'm not really sure how to categorize a book into underrated. I feel like overrated is easy - a book gets a ton of hype and then I hate it. Under... I realize that means that people haven't given it the time of day but it's really good, etc. But that's like - most of literature. So, I'm settling on The Jane Austen Book Club, by Karen Joy Fowler. The movie based on the book is super cheesy - yet one of those guilty pleasures I can watch anytime. I picked up the book anticipating the same sort of brainless fun, but was instead greeted by a beautifully written, gorgeous novel.
