Here’s my Thursday Meme. These are so much fun!
What, in your opinion, is the best book that you haven’t liked? Mind you, I don’t mean your most-hated book–oh, no. I mean the most accomplished, skilled, well-written, impressive book that you just simply didn’t like.
This is rather hard. I’m going to say F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. I know, I know. I’m committing sacrilege here but when I read it a few years ago I was not at all impressed. I found it rather dull and contrived although I can see the themes of social corruption and decadence shine through. The setting and era was lovely though but the book doesn’t hold a special place in me.
Saying that, I would like to give it another go and I have Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night on my to-read pile.
