Ramble: 30-Days of Books #9

I love books. I love words.

I am doing the 30-day book challenge to get some conversations started about books. Please do join in with a comment on your own books – or a link to your own post!

Day 9 and the next prompt is:

Name a book that you thought you would not like and ended up enjoying.

A book that I read that I thought I would not enjoy was Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie.
I was a teenager hooked on Ray Bradbury and Arthur C Clarke and Isaac Asimov.

Reading a thoughtful detective fiction seemed bizarre and weird. I read it. Enjoyed it! And discovered a whole new genre of fiction

Day 8 and the next prompt is:

What is the most overrated book you have read?

There are a few that come to mind. The one that sticks is is James Joyce’s Ulysses.
OMG. Dude you need an editor. It was a whole lot of nothing interesting interrupted by moments of sheer brilliance.
Which is a lot like life – but I already am living that reality of a whole lot of nothing. So now why read it?

Oh wait I just described the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan…

What is your most overrated book?
