Highly Overrated Writers

  1. Stephen Crane
    I just think it's wrong that someone who never went to war is praised for his "faithful" depiction of it in The Red Badge of Courage. I feel like it lacks truth because of this.
  2. J.D. Salinger
    We're all angry. Doesn't mean we write 200 pages of pure bitching.
  3. Albert Camus
    Pretentious as hell
  4. Milan Kundera
    Also pretentious, but his non-fiction is impossible to read and actually understand where he's going. The Curtain is interesting if someone explains it to you. It sucks when you're suffering through his prose.
  5. Michael Ondaatje
    He's just not as good as people insist
  6. Søren Kierkegaard
    Proof that philosophers are terrible communicators
