It's the same response I got with The Great Gatsby. I finished it and went... where's the story? What's the point? That's REALLY a classic?
I feel the same way about Hemmingway. My father and brother love the guy. I just dont care for his writing. Or Maya Angelou.
I am not too fond of the newer material from Steven King, either.
