Follow Friday

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.

Never read either of these myself. But it is a bummer when a well raved book turns out disappointing.

Here's my Follow Friday

Have a GREAT weekend!

Yes, Catch 22 is a book I definitely did not love. :) Haven't read the other one. Thanks for following my blog. I'm now following yours. Enjoy your weekend!

I have a confession. I've never read Catch 22, and I don't plan to. Bravo for sticking it out. I haven't ever heard of your second book. Thanks for stopping by my FF.

I haven't read either of those books and maybe it's a good thing since you hated Catch 22. :)
