These are be books that came highly recommended, but didn’t even come close to living up to their billing. Often they create a lot of buzz and everyone seems to be reading them; when you get to them you are seriously disappointed.
In no particular order:
- Prodigal Summer – Barbara Kingsolver
- A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius – Dave Eggers
- The God of Small Things – Arundhati Roy
