30-Day Book Challenge - Day 08

Day 08 - Most Overrated Book

Easy! I, of course, have a tag on Shelfari - 'not fond of,' which includes some obscure books, but also some books that everyone seems to praise so highly that I just hate. Still, my number one - I DON'T GET IT - isn't even on there. And looking back, I gave it two stars instead of just one - probably because it really is okay in terms of craft and does have some quotable moments. But to me, On the Road by Jack Kerouac is a poor imitation of Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises. Yet everybody loves it and if you don't love it, you ain't cool. Well. I don't care.

Purchase Now from Amazon, I guess: On the Road: 50th Anniversary Edition

  1. The movie version starring everyone's favorite vampire, Kristen Stewart is coming out later this year. Hopefully the movie will take away some 'cool factor' that this book has. I completely agree w/ your review.
