Hope u are refering to the books which I read in 2007 and not which got released in 2007...

Fathers and Sons-By Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev---Its is supposed to be one of the greatest works of literature but yet it failed to impress me..I got really bored (thats saying a lot coz usually, I am a patient reader and dun mind the size of a Book...this is interesting for Fathers and Sons is only abt 350 pgs long...)
The theme was the conflict of ideas of the Russian aristocratic Class(Father) and the innovative, arrogant, atheist younger Gen(Sons) and all...

Had huge expectations from it but sumhow I failed to see the beauty in it for which it is so famed..
Might be my mistake that I failed to... Embarrassed

Honestly the only book I could think of was Pride and Prejudice. The hype for this book is never ending, but I just couldn't get into what the hype was about. I didn't like Mr. Darcy either.

@lakshmi: Yes im referring to the bks u read in 2007! Embarrassed

Well i have to agree with jdsean.. Pride and Prejudice failed to get me intrested.. Even through all my friends had highly recommended id.. I did not find it intresting enough! Embarrassed

Another one was of William shakespeare.. I dont remember the name but somehow i couldnt dissolve the story! Embarrassed
