Inspired by Nausicaa, and by Grandma Next in the Thursday Next series who has to read the 10 most boring works of fiction before she can die, I'm setting up this thread.
The question is, which "classic" work of fiction do you fail to see the appeal of? What is your "Not-so-classic" Classic?
I'll start off with The Count of Monte Cristo. Utter dreck. I kept reading hoping at least he would exact some revenge at the end (thus making my toil somewhat worthwhile) but no. Very boring.
