Books I hated


After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

A while back I was posting in the monthly book thread and I mentioned a book I hated. Nate thought it was the first book I seemed to dislike. Here are a few I really hated and instead of a boring book review I will just say a few bits about it.

The Cardinal Of The Kremlin by Tom Clancy:

I read this about 8 years ago at one of my lowest points of my life, so maybe Im being a bit cruel on Tom Clancy. I was going out with a girl at the time and after acting like an asshole I was faced with a 14 hour bus journey to apologise. My friend gave me thi book to keep me occupied on the trip. I fucking hated it, I think after every few pages I would put it down and curse my dear friend who only meant well. I swore I would kick his ass but he was bigger than me. Damn you Tom Clancy.

Doctor Norrell and Mr Strange by Sussanna Clarke:

I think it was Sniffalotapuss who said he liked this book but honestly it was the worst piece of shit I read last year and possible the longest. I read the first bit and thought Woah this is fairly good but it could be better, unfortunately it didnt improve at all. It was so bad I used pages of it to line Cujos litter tray but he ended up shitting on the floor, nuff said.

More coming...

What books did you guys hate?
