meh.. I didn't really like F451, and only read 10 pages of Animal Farm. I hate the kind of books that try to make you think with all of these metaphors and sh*t.
The funny thing was that I got an A on the Animal Farm test without really reading anything. Multiple choice and T/F questions, which are always easy to guess on.

Hearts in Atlantis is my favorite.

After that you've got 1984, Franny and Zooey, Invisible Man, Lord of the Flies, Catch-22, and America the book.

Just curious does anybody else think Great Gatsby is a grossly overrated book?

I really liked 1984, definitely an interesting book that causes you to think. I liked the Great Gatsby as well, i had to read it for school last month. But for how short it is, and for how the book ends with no real point, it is a pretty overrated book.

Ender's Game-a science fiction novel but absolutely fantastic. The way its written, described and the story. It just f*cking brilliant.

The ending was the best part. I didn't even read the first few chapters at first, as when I was told I had to read it for class, I just used sparknotes for it. Then a few people started telling me how good it was, so I decided to give it a shot. Read from chapter 6 (I think) on, finished it, loved the ending, and went back and read it again.

I can't really give an opinion on whether or not it's overrated because I just haven't read enough classics to compare it to. I know it's a critically acclaimed novel and that I enjoyed it, but without knowing how good the rest of the books on its level are, I don't think I can make a fair judgment.

Maybe not the best, but highly recommended.
