Books that sucked
So often, you pick up a book while doing some random shopping in Borders, Waterstones or where ever you tend to buy books and get drawn in by what such and such a body said who works for the Guardian or one of those shiny Richard & Judy stickers (personally they are more a warning sign for myself).
So after you have been blown away by the praise laid upon the book, you pick it up only to find out it sucks big time!! :banghead:
With this in mind I just wondered what books are worth avoiding.
For me recently it would have to be
* Donna Tartt - [B]The Little Friend[/B], 555 pages later and you feel like little has been achived
* Tom Wolfe - [B]I am Charlotte Simmons[/B] Horrible ending which made me want to throw it across the room and characters that you just want to throttle the life out of
* Nick Hornby - [B]How to be Good[/B] I love his other books, but this was just a big disapointment and the young daughter was plain irritating.
* Dan Brown - [B]Angels & Demons[/B] Ok to be honest this was an enjoyable piece of Airport trash and worth picking up, its just he throws it away on the last 50 pages with all that stuff with the character jumping out of the helicopter, which kinda made me think [I]"Errr yeah right"[/I]
Ok whats yours??
