Bookonesty!!!

Are you honest enough to admit that you didnt understand a book…????

Well! I am…there are loads of books that have been best sellers, I have attempted reading and not really understood them…and whats wrong in admitting that…I mean big deal..that doesnt make me a smaller person or stupider person..I attempted, I failed to understand and I admit it…why pretend that you really got the hidden meaning in a book when you even failed to figure out what the words meant without the help of a dictionary 🙂
There have been books like Alchemist, God of Small Things, The White Tiger, Khalil Gibran and many others, which I have read completely but failed to understand or rather failed to figure out why they became best sellers or award winners..may be I really need a crash course in reading all over again!!!!

  1. Hey, I liked the openness with which you wrote this post. You are right. It's a free country and we have every right to express our thoughts without worrying about whether we failed to figure out something that lay hidden in these best sellers. Personally, I have not understand God of Small Things at all. Most friends have raved about it but I somehow failed to grasp what the hoopla is all about.
