Though madness is not part of the average Rodents characteristics, this particular feature can at times be subject to change, especially when striken by severe sleep deprivation.

PostSubject: LEAST favorite book   Wed Dec 10, 2008 11:27 pm

Of all the books you've read, which was the worst?

My answer is surprisingly NOT Twilight, although it is pretty near the top of my list.

Breaking Smith's Quarter Horse was TERRIBLY boring. I had to read it in 10th grade english and I actually fell asleep IN class, something I'd never done before and have not done since.

Second place goes to Little Women. I tried many, many, many times to finish that book and just could not do it. I didn't even know Beth died until I saw the movie.

Third place is of course, Twilight, for obvious reasons.

rofl That's funny, not knowing a character died until you saw the movie. That is a good sign that the book was boring.

Anyway, with all of the complaints I've made concerning the Twilight series, it's actually not my least favorite book. My least favorite would have to be, without question, Blood and Chocolate. I don't know how someone could like that book. (I can't believe I'm about to say this...) I can see why someone would like Twilight--there's Edward and Stephenie presents the whole vampire/immortality thing as charming. She hides the annoying parts very well. However, Blood and Chocolate, the main character Vivian is, dare I say it, shallower than Bella. She starts out by saying something about how she doesn't fit with other girls, they don't like her and she has no idea why. Then, a few pages later, she's admiring herself, naked shall I add, in front of a mirror, talking about her hips, breasts and just making it sound as if she were the epitome of physical perfection.

Not to mention, the whole book is just one throbbing hormone. At least Bella was good at hiding her hormonal-ness; Vivian's relationship consisted of snogging whatever the guy's name was (I know it started with an A: Aiden, maybe) and talking about herself, yet again.

I'm glad that book isn't as famous as Twilight is, though. If it was, I might just pull my hair out. I can look at Twilight and point out it had potential and some other good things, if I was willing to bend, but I can't do that with Blood and Chocolate. I've tried.

But, Twilight is the third least favorite. My second least favorite makes me just as mad as my first leave favorite... I'm going to stop complaining now... Or else I might: pc

I think Little Women actually tops my list of least favourite books. I never did finish it, because after the first forty pages I was bored out of my skull. Later my mother admitted she hated it, too, and had also never finished it.

I also hate, and I realise this is considered a classic but I seriously can't stand it, The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne. It's horribly unrealistic and I don't appreciate the actual advertisement for his other books it contains. No teenage boy on an island, no matter if it's an island which magically has everything one could ever need up to and including tobacco and a trained ape, is going to be happy there without some females. Unless he's flaming, I suppose, but this boy didn't seem to be. I just... I hate that book. So much. Not the author, I actually usually like Jules Verne in an absent-minded sort of way, but I hated The Mysterious Island.

This one's a bit unusual, but I think third has to be a book my Creative Writing teacher forced us to buy in high school because she wrote it. It was something like How To Build A Long-Lasting Fire, it was supposed to teach you how to write a poem but actually demonstrated what a complete narcissist the author was, and it was a class pastime to rip out pages to make paper airplanes and hurl them at the teacher. Surprisingly, she never did catch on to that. She did other things, like 'surprising' us with a guest speaker which turned out to be her mom and repeatedly leaving for gods-know-where and telling me to teach (actually sort of fun), but the book was the worst of it.

Sorry, that last one turned into more of a rant against a teacher. (Worse yet? Her little sister was my English teacher and was, if possible, worse). I did hate that book though. Several other students burned their copies, and it's possibly the only book I would ever be willing to burn.

Ooh, Guardian, that must really have sucked. That totally sounds like a case of narcissism. I've had my fair share of boring books in class that we've had to read. One of them: My Brother Sam is Dead. And I was like "So?!!" I read that book, but can't tell you what it's about, unless the title basically is a very brief synopsis of the plot. Which I know it isn't...

The Shades of Simon Gray by Joyce Mcdonald. A child could write better than that. Stephenie Meyer could write better than that. The characters are shallow and whiny, and I sympathize with none of them. The author continually fills the story with needless details (and repeats them at every possible moment, just in case we've forgotten what street the character's friend lives on or what the neighbor's cat's name is), and I swear she described every single outfit each character wore. The foreshadowing was plainly obvious. The author failed at every attempt to create suspense. She's not good at imagery, either. You'd think a woman who had been a publisher for fourteen years would be able to write a decent book. Apparently not.

The worst part: this book was assigned by my English teacher. He says it's "wrought with conflict", but most of the conflicts are about teenage angst. I literally cannot bring myself to finish this book, even if it is a homework assignment.

Oh dear. "The Sound and the Fury" by Faulkner, no doubt. There he goes and reinvents writing, and THAT is what he produces?? In that case, I'll just stick with the old method of writing, thank you very much.

It's a tie between The Red Badge of Courage and Cold Sassy Tree.

The Red Badge of Courage was so bad that I don't even remember it! Shocked

And Cold Sassy Tree was a coming-of-age story with no real plot. Snore fest! Sleep

That is so true! It wasn't their gem names that bothered me, but their extremely Mary-Sue characters. The entire plot was a walking cliche! The Army of Light? The Army of Darkness? Come on Bujor, get real.

Oh God, yes! Half of the book was stolen themes that she made even worse!

Honestly, some writers need to wait until they are adults before considering publishing.

Oddly enough, I haven't read most of the books that were listed above, so Twilight still tops my list. Although, The Scarlet Letter is pretty dang close to overtaking Twilight. I understand that it is a classic, but....UGHHH I HATE IT. It seems like Hawthorne is just dragging on...and on...and on...... Sleep

You're not the only one who feels that way, Zara! I thought the same thing as well, but since I hadn't finished the whole book, I didn't bother to list it. It's not my least favorite book; it's just really boring.

Well, Twilight is certainly at the top of my list! ESPECIALLY Breaking Dawn. I thought you couldn't get any worse in the Twilight series, and then the 4th book came out *sigh* Mad But I actually hate most if not all classics. This includes Wuthering Heights which was one of the most boring books I have had the misfortune to read, Moby Dick, whcih was also insanely boring, Hawthorne Heights, and The Scarlet Letter. But, all in all, I think Twilight tops all of them!

I found Moby Dick really boring but I actually liked Scarlet Letter. Sure, it was kinda slow but the story and language is beautiful. I like classics but I HATE fantasy books. They're all exactly the same to me and I find it ridiculous that most of the names are unpronounceable.

I'll agree that I like classics, btu we have such different opinions on fantasy. Each one reads differently to me, but I kind of see what you are saying. lol! about the unpronouncable names. Sometimes, it's okay but sometimes it really distracts me. But some of the names are really pretty. Like "Lyra" from His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. I loved that first book, but never got to read the rest unfortunately...

Random question, Denizen. Do you like anime, perchance?

I liked Pullman's books. Those names were fine but there are so many other books out there with names that distract the heck out of me. Have you ever read the Redemption of Althalus? That was horrible! It started off pretty good but then it got really annoying with the sweet talking and the old Bible language. The names were pronounceable enough except for the boy named Ghar's.

No I haven't read it myself, but my friend did and told me she didn't like it. Now that I have two separate opinions that match, I think I'll avoid the book, unless I'm curious enough. Some of the names ARE annoying...totally distract me.

Do you think I should read on in His Dark Materials?

I read the first two of Pullman's books but then for some reason, I got kinda bored so I couldn't keep going. I think I'll try again someday when I have more time but if you like it so far, you should keep on going. I hear it's kinda controversial.

So, I'm butting in. Anyway, I'm not much of a fan of classics, if you've seen me on Y!A. Of course, I have a few I like, but most I either haven't read or found uninteresting.

Anyway, if you see the reviews for the books (Dark Materials) on Amazon, you'll know why it's controversial. But I haven't read the books. Yet.

denizen, should you ever find it in yourself to give another fantasy series a try then you must give The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind a try, I think you will find MOST of his names pronounceable. The main characters names are Richard and Kahlan. Also there is Zed, Agie, Rachel, Chase, Anne, Nikki, Cara, Denna, etc etc etc. They are also VERY well written and are, in my opinion, the most amazing fantasy series I have ever read. I used to be a fantasy hater until I read these.

Well, Pride and Prejudice and Crime and Punishment were pretty decent. But, in general, I tend to hate most classics. I know they're classics and are supposed to be so wonderful, but I can't see WHY they're classic. I, myself, enjoy more difficult books, but most classics I've read are just boring!

Well, Twilight is certainly at the top of my list! ESPECIALLY Breaking Dawn. I thought you couldn't get any worse in the Twilight series, and then the 4th book came out *sigh* Mad But I actually hate most if not all classics. This includes Wuthering Heights which was one of the most boring books I have had the misfortune to read, Moby Dick, whcih was also insanely boring, Hawthorne Heights, and The Scarlet Letter. But, all in all, I think Twilight tops all of them!

I didn't know that you disliked classics in general. Are there any notable ones out there that you like or are okay to?

Well, Pride and Prejudice and Crime and Punishment were pretty decent. But, in general, I tend to hate most classics. I know they're classics and are supposed to be so wonderful, but I can't see WHY they're classic. I, myself, enjoy more difficult books, but most classics I've read are just boring!

I LOVED both of those books. Pride and Prejudice is timeless and Crime and Punishment is so complex. Rodion Raskolnikov has got to be one of my most favorite literary characters of all time. He's brilliant, but confused. Kind of mental, but logical and cunning. He's kind of paradoxical...
