Maybe it's too soon to say "most overrated in history", but I think Harry Potter is not worthy of all the fuss it's received. It's a decent read, but nowhere near a classic.

I also think T.S. Eliot is highly overrated.

OK, now I'm getting warmed up. Also:

Stranger in a Strange Land
Atlas Shrugged (absolute garbage)
Charles Dickens (give me Thomas Hardy any day)

Regards

Jeff
