7. Gargantua and Pantagruel

Gargantua and Pantagruel
Francois Rabelais
Words cannot even express how much I hated this book.  I read it while I was visiting London so I had given myself ample time to read (on planes, the tube, the flat, etc.)  and I hated myself for it.  It was gross, boring, crude, stupid, irrelevant, and just overall the worst.  I know it might be because I am a girl or that I did not grasp its significance but come on people!  The only theme I derived from this was poop.

  2. I can only agree. This was pretty terrible. A comedy needs to be fun. 1000+ pages of not being funny is an ordeal.
