Top 5 overrated books worth reading
These books are mentioned all the time because well, they are classics and brilliant. So here we go:
1. 1984 George Orwell
Oh, this book is scary, so scary, but somehow, I found it romantic in a weird way. Am I being naive? Each book affects people in a different way. It’s not a romantic book; it’s not a love story, but the fact that these two people were meeting up in secret under such circumstances was breathtaking. Some book are overrated for a reason because they are good. You can check the review over this end http://joannewritesbooks.com/blog/1984-book-review/
2. Catcher in the Rye J.D Salinger.
Listed in every list as the most overrated, boring, annoying book ever written. I didn’t read this masterpiece in my teens, but now, that I am in my thirties. This book spoke to me in ways that no story ever did. When you’re older you see things in a different point of view. If you read it clearly, you see that Holden is talking about today’s society, rather than the one of the 50s. It’s ahead of its time. A beautiful, touching story oneone of my all time favorite books.
3. Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling
The much beloved overrated books. No need for a summary for this one. Great world building, and wonderful imagination from the author, beautiful story altogether.
4. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
This book is so terrifying and has left such an impact on me, that till this day (read it three years ago) I sometimes stop what I’m doing and think about it. It’s shocking, I just can’t even grasp why all that careful planning and dedication to frame your husband, when you can easily divorce him. However it’s the ending that made it this overrated book even more disturbing and creepy. Read the review here: http://joannewritesbooks.com/blog/gone-girl-gillia…lynn-book-review/
5. Thirteen Reason Why by Jay Asher.
I think this book became overrated after the popular TV show and its controversy. I hadn’t heard about its existence before, either that or I had been hiding under a rock all this time. This book is not for the faint of heart despite being for young adults, a genre I don’t normally read, I read it out of curiosity to see what the big deal was all about. I don’t recommend it to read it when you’re having a bad time in your life.
It’s about a girl Hannah Baker and she committed suicide, before she died, she recorded tapes stating the thirteen reasons why (as the title suggests) she was going to kill herself The tapes were sent to various people before arriving at Clay’s door.
It’s rather disturbing, I had to stop a few times and do something else before I could continue. It’s sad and heart breaking and one of the books that made me snob after I finished. A beautiful, sad book. Read Review over here http://joannewritesbooks.com/blog/thirteen-reasons…sher-book-review/
