And this week’s topic is:
Does a book’s status as a classic, make it good?
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?
