Time to get negative, everybody! Over on Jezebel they're talking about "sacred cows" of film, television, pop culture, and literature...works that we are loath to admit we despise, even when we really, truly, do. For example, Sadie admits to hating Ferris Bueller's Day Off--definitely a controversial statement among the late 20s crowd. So I'm asking you, readers, to give me your best example of a classic novel you (for whatever reason) can't stand. Maybe you hated the extra chapters in Moby Dick on blubber, maybe you think Jane Austen is dry, maybe you couldn't get through A Farewell to Arms because Hemingway's blatant misogyny offended you (cough cough)...either way, send me your most-loathed classic novels and we'll discuss.
