Day Forty Eight
Q: Worst book you’ve ever read?
A: The Scarlet Letter and Lord of the Flies are tied.
I’ve read The Scarlet Letter 2 or 3 times at this point thanks to being an English major, but it has never grown on me. I understand the point of the story but I just hated it so much, especially the first time I read it in high school.
Lord of the Flies probably deserves another chance because I think I was too young to really understand it when I first read it. But I remember thinking the characters were just awful so I don’t really want to read it again… *when I say awful I mean they are awful human beings, not awfully written.
Question for you:
What was the worst book you had to read in high school/college?
