Book Challenge Day 26- A Book You Wish You Never Read

Posted on

I actually couldn’t think of a book for this post. Even books that I didn’t particularly enjoy didn’t make me wish I had never read them. They just made me not want to read them again. But then, my fiancé reminded me of the dreaded book that I was forced to read in school-

That’s right, Heart of Darkness. Joseph Conrad is mean and cruel for inflicting this book upon civilization. I know some people, and by some I mean a vast majority, believe this to be an incredible work of literature. I believe it to be nothing short of cruel and unusual punishment. I was first forced to read it my senior year of high school and barely made it out alive. When I found out that my first and only English class of college would also be reading it I almost cried. I have never had such intense negative feelings for a book. I just thought the story was horrible and the writing impossibly difficult to get through.

About Jaclyn

I’m a digital copywriter at an advertising agency- think Peggy from Mad Men but remove the print ads and add a website. Between my family, friends and job I hear a lot of interesting things. I’ve decided to share them and how they inspire me on this blog. There’s no theme or goal in mind and I promise I will not update with any kind of regularity. But hopefully whatever I do put up here will be entertaining, or entertaining enough to add to the “procrastinating at work by checking every mediocre website on the internet” list.
