"My great-great grandfather is not gay!" and other insightful criticism

Apostropher and Bitch Ph.D have both drawn attention to this article, a collection of one-star Amazon reviews of Time's 100 top novels.

Some of these folks actually seem to know what they're talking about. I really liked the review of The Grapes of Wrath: “While the story did have a great moral to go along with it, it was about dirt! Dirt and migrating. Dirt and migrating and more dirt.” But most of it is more in line with this review of Lord of the Flies: "I am obsessed with Survivor, so I thought it would be fun. WRONG!!!"
