What is a book you didn’t like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn’t popular?
My sister absolutely gushed over Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. I was game, always willing to try books even if the premise didn't particularly interest me. I hated it. Truly hated it. I know there are a lot of people out there who think it's the best book ever written, etc. but I couldn't wait to finish it. It's the kind of book that makes me want to throw against the wall.
There are many books I love that other people to which I've recommended them didn't enjoy. One that comes to mind is The Egyptologist by Arthur Phillips. It's a bit bizarre, ok, but it's a fabulous one.
