I think a book can be overrated but still perfectly enjoyable. For me I suppose that means most fall into that category The Name of the Wind. I liked it, but it didn't strike me as a masterpiece type of thing all the people who made me read it were claiming it was. Same with LotR. I loved The Hobbit, so naturally I read LotR, but it took FOREVER to get through the first section. Man, Tolkien could really write dull, and hobbits are DULL. Time to throw stones at some classics. To Kill a Mockingbird. I hate that book. ANYTHING Hemingway ever wrote. The Old Man and the Sea is coma inducing drivel at best. The Scarlet Letter. Meh Wuthering Heights makes me want to vomit Catcher in the Rye is also sucktastic. I feel better now Also on the list, The last WoT book Dance with Dragons (seriously, THAT is what we waited for?) I would agree with Terry Pratchett in general The Sword of Truth novels. I got through 5 maybe before I had to stop the torture... my torture. and my most overrated books of all time? The Twilight novels. I have read them, and all I can say is... WHY does Stephanie Meyers hate women and like abusive men so much and WHY would someone ever read the first book and say "yes, please write more?" Also, in extension any published fan fic of the garbage that is Twilight is an auto loser. I am lookin at you 50 shades of pathetic.
