    so, we've all had those days in English class, where the teacher gives out a book and tells you to read,

    in YOUR opinion, what was the worst book you've read in english class?

    IMO: The Great Gatsby, it's prettty dull imo, compared to somethin like Of Mice and Men

    At one point I had to read a book called Ready Player One thats probably better known for its movie adaptation. I don't have many books I remember but that one was bad. A huge portion of it was the main character complaining and moving the plot along from plot contrivances in a cliche "what if technology took over" setting. Video game references are the only thing going for this book and are all shallow and pointless to begin with.

    I saw the movie for school as well and it was also very cliche and the references were the only thing of note about it. It was funny sometimes but your time is spent better elsewhere.

    This is a good book. It sucks though and is painful to read because of how relevant it is

    Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. That book was so boring and I couldn't understand what was going on. Even the audiobook was hard to follow along with. Never have I read such an excruciatingly boring book.

    Oh man, it has to be a tie between Lord of the Flies by William Golding and The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier.

    I'll start with the former. I never understood what the plot of LOTF was and I read the whole book from front to back 4 separate times. Normally if I don't understand what's going on in a book it only takes me one reread to understand what was going on, but not this book. I know this book is listed as a classic, but if I read something over 4 times and I still don't understand it and if I still don't enjoy it then I don't think it's a very good book.

    The ladder was something I had to do for a summer packet. I also read this over 4 times, and I eventually understood what was going on, and I thought the plot was extremely stupid.

    I haven't read these books in a long while and I have no plans to read them in the future, but I can tell you that in my opinion these books just were nowhere close to the quality of Animal Farm, the Hunger Games trilogy, or Romeo and Juliet.
