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.
Like, for movies–-I can acknowledge that Citizen Kane is a tour de force and is all sorts of wonderful, cinematically speaking, but... I just don’t like it. I find it impressive and quite an accomplishment, but it’s not my cup of tea.
So... what book (or books) is your Citizen Kane?
I'm still waiting for my coffee to infiltrate my system this morning, so I'll go with the first book that comes to mind. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. I talk a bit more about it in this post.
