The Canterbury Tales

While I was in high school, I read The Canterbury Tales.  However, last month I decided to read the book again.

The book was written by Geoffrey Chaucer and it contains multiple short stories.  It was written in the vernacular, instead of Latin or French.  This was extremely uncommon at the time, which is why many literary experts believe this book had a huge impact on English literature.

There were a few stories in the book that I liked, but most of them did not impress me.  I know The Canterbury Tales is considered a classic piece of literature, but honestly I am not that fond of it.
