What was the name of the worst book you've ever read?


Some people point to Moon People. Others mention the numerous post-apocalyptic "Survivalist" tales. Either way, there are tons and tons bad books out there. What's your least favorite?

    The thing that gets me about this book is that the author "non-fiction research" book the story was based on, wanted to sue Dan Brown for stealing his idea.I don't think I ever heard of anything like that.

    I've chucked a lot of books after reading the first few chapters. I think nearly every Golden Eagle Publication met that fate. Simply put, if the book defies the rules of logic, good taste, or readability, it's not worth reading.

    Speaking of religious-themed books, Left Behind sticks out as one of my least favorite books. In fact, that book would still be bad without the religious themes -- the end-timer stuff makes it horrible.

    I've had that experience. I've read books people claimed were the greatest, but came away disappointed because I couldn't relate or empathize with it. I Ballard's book Crash comes to mind.

    I never read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, but I saw parts of the film version and turned it off. It was bad. Real bad.

    My wife wants me to read that book. Right now, it's collecting dust. Then again, I saw 50 Shades, the musical. So I don't know if I read it with a straight face.
