TUESDAY TALKS: Does a book status as a classic make it good?

Don’t forget that you can find previous Tuesday Talks posts right here.

This is set up by the wonderful Janie over at Bookworms Buddy, and Janelle at MrsJRodsReads. This really segment is, as the name implies, a talk each Tuesday about a book-related topic.


And this week’s topic is:

Does a book’s status as a classic, make it good?

Erm…no!

I can safely say no to this question because I have read some classics and believe me I wasn’t impressed. One of these classics is The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Please put the pitchforks away…I just didn’t like it.

It was okay but I didn’t see what made it so good, or at least good enough to be a classic.

There are some books I’d like to add to the classics list for how good they are though, including: The Color Purple by Alice Walker, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

What about you?
