Feeding Frenzy! The Top Ten List of Worst Books You’ve Ever Read
Nathaniel Hawthorne’s THE SCARLET LETTER had to be the hardest book I’ve ever read. I didn’t like the book and I resented my American lit teacher with a passion for making me read it. She also forced me to read WALDEN, THE GRAPES OF WRATH and ON THE ROAD – cementing my dislike of classic American Literature. Sorry the Brits got us on the classics in my opinion.
Nothing is worse then a great series going to pot…and while I kept reading on in the series, this one sort of set the stage for my hatred of the series. It pains me, but it tops the list. And while a lot of the dislike might be considered “slut shaming” – it really isn’t for me. If there was a plot in between the massive amounts of sex – I might still be paying my $25.00 for a hardcover. Which I also think is RIDICULOUS!!!
If you want to read a book with an almost comical amount of misspelled words, bad grammar, characters that are not likable in the least (and the few good characters DIE), a plot with holes the size of the grand canyon, a lot of vomiting, sex that morphs bushes into expressive topiaries, written by an author who doesn’t know how to handle herself online…well this is the book for you.
I was so upset after reading this book, that I wrote a comparison chart into my review. A comparison chart showing exactly how this book was a TWILIGHT rip-off. Anything closer and she would have plagiarized TWILIGHT.
I used to love Stephen King, his earlier novels will appear on my all time favorites list. I pre-ordered this bad boy and then spent 2 days trudging through it. A lot of the book still sits with me, so I have to say, for some this could be a good, compelling book – but I just found it to be tiring. The characters were ridiculous stereotypes and the ending was fulfilling. The let-down of this novel still resonates today. The tv series even got boring.
Halfway through – you still with me?
I get it, it was satire. No, actually I didn’t get it. This was probably the worst satirical novel I’ve read. Because it wasn’t satirical, it was a badly written dystopian.
This was a highly anticipated post-apocalyptic novel that turned into a drab, slow-paced, yawn fest. It was as if Steinbeck wrote a dystopian and that is not a compliment. Think really poor, desperate people, barely surviving – in the a really poor, desperate future. So desperate and poor that you feel dirty after reading.
I thought Hilary Duff’s ghost writer would have been a bit better… unfortunately Duff must have had more input into this novel then she should have. Immortality, shopping and American Express Black cards. Captivating I say!
This book and I just didn’t get along together. It was ridiculous. It made me feel uncomfortable. The harassment by rabid fans over my 1 star review made me hate this book ever more.
I really don’t want to put this book on ANY list on my site, I got enough traffic from the read-along. But, this has to be the worst book ever written – based on the plot, the characters, the inner monologue of the heroine and then it’s popularity. I wish people would read other books – but what can you do?
