In an attempt to save readers valuable reading time when there is so much great stuff out there, The Second Pass lists ten books :
... that will be pressed into your hands by ardent fans. ... Resist them!is the advice. The books not to read are :
- White Noise by Don DeLillo
- Absalom, Absalom by William Faulkner
- One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez
- The Road by Cormac McCarthy
- The Rainbow by D. H. Lawrence
- On the Road by Jack Kerouac
- The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen
- The USA Trilogy by John Dos Passos
- Jacob’s Room by Virginia Woolf
- A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
Others on the list I haven't read, but now I'm curious.
