The Jungle

I picked a bad book for a milestone. It just happens that i've finished The Jungle by Upton Sinclair as my 101st book off the 1001 Books list. That gives me 10% done. Unfortunately i really didn't like The Jungle. If it was just a treatise on the ills of capitalism i probably wouldn't have minded but it is supposed to be a story of a family as they emigrate to the United States and, as that, it sucked ass. Boooooooooring. sad, depressing, terrible, gross, but still rather boring.

  1. Not all classics are good. This sounds like one of them. Better luck next time. I have to read Tobacco Road for school. I am not sure what I am in for.
