I've enjoyed the recent discussion on the top five books of all time, but it's also got me thinking...What is the most overrated novel of all time? You know, that one book that the broader literary community labels indispensable, but you just don't get.
For me, it would be Bram Stoker's "Dracula"
This novel contains whole 100 page sections that seem to me to be completely irrelevant to the story line. While it might have worked as a more focused novella, as a full length novel I just didn't get it. It's no wonder that Stoker never managed to write anything else note worthy.
Now that I've offended the masses, it's your turn. Whats the most over rated novel of all time?
