Brenda Jacqueline Why is Romeo & Juliet here, it's a timeless classic. (Just because it was probably a book you were forced to read in school doesen't make it bad/overrated.)


message 2: by Simms (new)

Simms Molly It is probably my all time worst book, it's just rubbish. My personal opinion :)


message 3: by Simms (new)

Simms Molly I could say the same about whys Harry Potter on the list my absolute favourite but someones put the there.


message 4: by Katty (new)

Katty I don't think either Harry Potter or Romeo & Juliet should be here... But at least the ones that should are top on the list =)


message 5: by Rosie (new)

Rosie Why is HP, Mortal Instruments, Beautiful Creatures, and Wuthering Heights on the list? :( And ahem, Romeo and Juliet?!?!


message 6: by Jolainne (new)

Jolainne DeSouza Wow! Some of the books on that list totally deserve to be there but not the classics like Wuthering Heights and Romeo and Juliet, also the Mortal Instruments is a great series so is HP. As for Twilight, it definitely deserves to be at the apex of this list.


message 7: by Rosie (new)

Rosie Agreed 100% XD


message 8: by Antoinette (new)

Antoinette I notice that plays such as--- " Romeo & Juliet " and " Mac Beth " are considered to be books. They're not. Just a small point, or am I being too picky ?


message 9: by Maxime (new)

Maxime Just because Romeo and Juliet is considered a classic that doesn't mean its good! The title of this list is exactly that - overrated. And Romeo and Juliet is considered the best love book of all times, best play etc. etc. And its not. Its not Shakespeare's best nor the best play. I'll be bold and tell you that in my opinion Shakespeare is the most overrated author of all times! Period!
