Lord of the rings.

He's the hero The Pit deserves but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. GbAdimDb5m7.

My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. My 10th grade English class's curriculum left one reading at the discretion of the teacher and this was the book she chose. So much hand-wringing over the big dilemma of whether this girl would donate her kidney to her sister or not, and at the end she just dies in a car crash.

Catcher in the Rye.

Can't stand that book, at all.

If a book was that bad, I would stop reading it.

That being said, New Moon was painful.

What a dreadful book. Nathaniel Hawthorne seemed to be more interested in showing off his figurative speech than actually telling the story.

Whilst The Long Walk by Stephen King overall was and still is one of my favourite books, the ending of it is my least favourite. It's terrible!

You know when you're writing a story in an English exam and you haven't finished but your teacher calls out 2 more minutes so you have to rush the ending and bring it to a sudden close leaving out a lot of information you would have wanted to put in?

That's exactly what I felt after I read The Long Walk. The ending is just so rushed in my opinion

Worst two books I have read: Frankenstein and Twilight. Frankenstein I got so bored and Twilight... just terrible.

Edit: Oh and Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging. I used to get very bored at my ex-girlfriends place.

I loved that book and I don't seem to recall being disappointed with the ending. I did read it a long time ago, so maybe I just don't remember it very well.

Anyway, my choices are the first Lord of the Rings book (the only book I've not been able to finish after making it halfway through), and the second is some book about horses that was required reading in elementary school. Google tells me it might be "Misty of Chincoteague".

Twilight.

Female author, female protagonist, female target demographic, and the book is about a female willing to give up everything, to be subservient and self sacrificing for a male. What's up wit that?

Pretty self explanatory, what are the worst books you have read?

So far, the most boring book I have read is Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.



Well i guess if I try reading this book....I won't have... Great Expectations.

YEAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH !!!!!!!!!

The Great Gatsby. Seriously the entire plot could have been written on the back cover. That shows how a 15 page story could be dragged out to 170 pages.

A book titled "Excavation" by James Rollins, and some other book by him. Shitty thriller-adventure books, don't know why I read them both tbh.

Same here.
Great book, terrible ending.


The worst book i've ever read, and i'm not sure this counts since i've only read the first 3 chapters or so, is To Kill a Mockingbird.
So. ****ing. Boring.

"Sword of the Shannara". For some reason you'll find it on EVERY Fantasy top-100 list, and it's absolutely terrible.

About "Catcher in the Rye"... first time I read it I thought "WTF, this is famous?" When I read it again some years later, however, it made more sense and I enjoyed it a lot more. Not the best book ever but still worth a read I think.

Definitely this. That book makes me want to defecate on Nathaniel Hawthorne's gravestone.

This too. I had to read it in school, and thought it was really pointless. It was dragged on

Any Shakespeare I've read.

Well...

The actual texts themselves aren't too bad (upon reflection, getting through them is a bit dull), but the people who think they're literary geniuses because they've read Shakespeare make me want to boycott his works all together.

I tend to be very closed off with my reading habits because I know so many people who think that reading has some kind of hipster street cred attached to it...
