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?
Everybody call it the good book, yet, the worse book I have ever read...in my opinion that would be the bible. The biggest piece of voodoo none sense I have ever read in my life.
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.
Books that I find bad lose me very early on, so I the only books I've finished reading are books that I'd consider to be at least average.
The worst book I didn't even manage to read till the middle part is 50 shades of Grey. Bhueee
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.
Tell your wife that there are lots of erotic romance that is worth of reading but not this one book. From my point of view it is a collection of cliche.
I think that musical is quite enough for you))
Nice Work by David Lodge. The novel is relentlessly boring in its plot and style. The best thing to come from it is that it is the book that made me decide that if I didn't actually enjoy some aspect of a book, I would not read it. There are too many good stories out there to waste time on books that don't speak to you in any way. Other people can enjoy Nice Work, but I dislike it more than any novel I've ever read.
Probably The Davinci Code. Although the concept was interesting the actual construction of the sentences and use of language was simply ugly. I had to force myself to finish the book. And oh yes, the cheap cliffhangers on the end of each chapter, cheesy.
Ther have been a lot of books that I discarded after reading the first chapter, including Steven King's "IT". However, probably the worst book that I managed to struggle through to the end (in my opinion..it was a New York Times best-seller) is "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" by John Berendt.
The worst book I actually finished was "She's Come Undone" by Wally Lamb. I kept reading hoping that something would happen and it really doesn't, it's kind of similar to the game "depression quest", it aims to be feminist and to show the ordinary life struggles of a fat woman, but they prove to be uninteresting or overly depressing most of the time. It's like "Precious" but for white people, that kind of story. Swings back and forth between too tragic and too dull. I've tried to read a few books and not gotten through them, including Twilight. I never finished Dune but I wouldn't say it was a terrible book, but it seems very overrated. I like the sci-fi genre but that book takes too long to say nothing and has way too many foreshadowing giveaways in the form of the chapter intros by the princess Irelan, who is the main character's daughter from the future. So it's kind of like the future is trampling the present in that book, I could have dealt with less Irelan and more of Herbert showing me what was happening in the moment. And just nothing in Dune seemed to move fast. Have you ever read something and thought, this is a nice concept but they could have cut hundreds of pages? It felt like that.

What is the most life-changing book you've ever read?I'm not looking for your favorite book (unless of course it happens to be your favorite, too), I'm interested in what book has affected you the most. Good, bad, both--I want to know it all!
