But here‘s an entertaining list of the top ten books people do apparently lie about having read. Which seems strange to me, but then I’ve read the actual unabridged version of Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables, so I have big-book cred despite never having read War and Peace.
I’m surprised James Joyce’s Ulyssesisn’t on here. I hear it’s basically unreadable. Never looked at it myself, so I wouldn’t know.
I’ve read five of the books on this list and actually very much enjoyed two of them. I only read Jane Eyre so I could better appreciate Sharon Shinn’s Jenna Starborne.
I can’t say I have ANY desire to read 1984. I mean, we kind of know how that one comes out even without reading it, right? No, thanks. I’m grateful to have got off without reading it in high school.
Any of your favorites / least favorites make the list? Truly?
