I only read Frankenstein last year (and my passive vocabulary is ridiculously broad, anyway, so it wouldn't have mattered much had I read it earlier), so I only found it dreadfully boring and predictable, but I had a similar experience to YamiRaziel's when I was given The Great Gatsby as a reward for winning an English language contest in 7th grade. (Whoever thought that was an age-appropriate novel? I was 13 at the time...)

I did not get The Great Gatsby. At all. To be honest, I still don't get what the fuss is about with this one, since I also find it dreadfully boring. Somehow, "classics" about white dudes doing dude-things, told from the POV of white dudes, do nothing for me. At least Dracula has female POV characters...

I've read great gatsby about a year ago and I found it beautifully written. The story was indeed lacking, but I wouldn't go so far to go "hmph, white dudes, where ma strong independent womyn at?", my dear Merkel-voting friend. If anything, the story helped me confirm the thesis that falling in love will kill you king
But, for reals, 13 year olds should be reading Harry Potter, not english classics Rolling Eyes

I haven't read frankenstein or Dracula, though, and honestly I don't think I'm missing much.

Woah, slow down with the accusations there, I did not vote for Merkel. Shocked Way to go to insult me like that!

To be fair, it's been a while since I actually managed to get through Gatsby, and I don't remember too much of the story. I wanted to dig it back out when I saw that there was a movie version, but just couldn't be bothered, so ... no idea whether the novel proves that falling in love can kill you, old chap.

Women don't have voting rights in Germany, as it should be, did you forget, Philo?
