Has there ever been a really famous, really well liked book you just never cared for, or just did not understand the appeal of? Tell us about it. For me, it's Hermann Hesse's Steppenwolf. To me, it's just 500 Days of Summer written by Thomas Mann. I don't need a book about some proto-hipster who finds for himself a manic pixie dream girl girlfriend. I mean, forget Holden Caulfield, you who can at least argue has a good reason to be annoying, this guy is the worst!
