List some of the worst books you've read and why they were horrible
I've read a lot of books in my life. Being an avid reader, I have come across some very good and very bad books. I'm one of those people who has to finish what I start, so no matter how bad a book is, I read it cover to cover. The worst book I've read is by one of my favorite authors, Stephen King.
I don't know if The Tommyknockers by Stephen King seemed so bad because I expected more or because it was bad, but I suspect the latter. Each chapter dragged on and on and it seemed it would never end. The characters were so unlikeable that halfway through the book I realized I didn't care whether they lived or died. I couldn't relate to them and didn't care what happened to them.
With all the excellent books out there waiting to be read, I wasted my time with this, hoping it would get better. It didn't. And to make matters worse, network television made a miniseries from The Tommyknockers, which I also wasted my time with. I thought it could only be an improvement on the book. I was wrong.
