does anyone else refuse to read this book, solely on the fact that the entire american world has deemed it a piece of literary brilliance?
the majority of people aren't that interesting or that smart, i know for damn sure (because i'm from the stupid country) that a fuck load of americans are complete morons. if something is this popular, it cant possibly be that good. you see in america and pretty much everywhere (because no country is inhabited by masses of critical intellectuals), to really fucking sell something you have to make appeal to the majority...and the majority just isn't that smart.
and it doesn't help that almost every boring, unintelligent, unintellectual and uncritical person i know has read this book and lists it as one of their favorites. what are the others on their list? some michael chricton books, various books 'written' by athletes, some rush limbaugh book, etc. while all the intelligent people i know who've read it, sum it up as a quick moderately interesting read, but not particularly well researched or innovatively presented.
i don't think i'll ever read this book. i hear steven spielberg and tom hanks are collaborating to make a movie of it. i'll see that and save my literary time for more substantial works.
