People Hate Classic Books Through Hilarious Tweets at #worstbookever

At the hashtag #worstbookever, you’ll learn some things. Huck Finn isn’t well-liked. The works of Homer and Shakespeare are scorned. That’s because most of these virulent tweets are lobbed from American high schoolers and middle schoolers continuing the ongoing battle waged between teenagers and required reading. The hatred of a new generation is a lovely, comforting thing; isn’t it nice to know that some things will never change? There’s something wonderful about knowing a teenager out there is using Spark Notes on A Doll’s House, just like you did when you were in high school.
