PostSubject: WORST Books You've Ever Read   Tue Dec 14, 2010 6:34 pm

Hey everyone! This is just a thread where you, as the title may suggest, talk about the books that you've read that you think are just the worse. You can talk about more than just one book though be open to someone if they might like a book that you don't. Be intelligent and kind :]

The first book that I'll start off with is Twi- Rhymes with Witches. For those of you are fans of Lauren Myracle as much as I love her and her childish writing style this book was absolutely the worst. While the character's main struggle is the tried and worn "I want to be popular!" the plot itself was actually interesting, with 4 girls one for each year of high school having the ability to suck the popularity from other girls by stealing different posessions of any girl, like hair pins or pencils. The problem with this book is not only that the main character is unlikeable but also that the book has virtually no ending. It cuts off rignt when everything has gone wrong and instead of being given an epic battle of some sorts it just ends with the main character stating that things are going to be hard from there on.

Has anyone else read this monstrosity?

There I moved it. Its all nice and warm in the book thread now =P


Now lets see....

To Kill a Mocking Bird
The Great Gatsby
Twitti ( twilight)
Harry Potter And the Order of the Phoenix
Harry Potter Deathly Hallows

Ok to kill a mockingbird. I didn't like it because well... it was boring... Of course at the time the book was dealing with a very touchy subject. Bravo. But I found the story did not have much to offer me. To be frank I had to read this. Usually when I HAVE to read something I don't like it. It sucks. I'd rather read for enjoyment not for a grade. I read enough as is. But I guess I'm the small minority of this generation that enjoys books. Perhaps this is one of the reasons I find the book awful or perhaps it was the reason of I find it too.. stereotypical. Classic small town with the classical hard working man who is trying to raise his kids after his beloved wife dies. The spooky house across the street that kids dare each other to go into. The typical white trashy alcoholic hicks that are so pro south they feel the need to kick some black ass. And the tomboy girl with her preteen macho brother who will become a 40s jock chasing girls in poodle skirts...oh wait is that the 50s? eh oh well I get those two decades mixed. Anyways. I find this story too ... American stereotypical for my taste. Not to mention a lot of themes are not very well developed. OK, Why kill a mockingbird? And how is that related to Boo Radley? um maybe my teach didn't explain it very well and sadly neither did the book. I can infer Mark Twain better then this and Shakespearean what light on yonder's and the magical story of MacBeth ( beautiful story so beautiful. One would say Shakespeare knew his occult. But this story? All I could understand was the racial conflicts and even though the black man was innocent he still gets killed cause he was born black. And maybe the simularities between him and Boo. But thats it. If someone could explain to me the little tidbits maybe I'll like it better. I'm not saying I hate the book but it could have been better presented. Seeing things through a child's eyes does not give the best picture. I suppose it is too innocent for one to understand but maybe that is the brilliance of the book. Naivety of the American stereotypes.


To be short on The Great Gatsby. I never read it, got an A on the test. Moving on.


Twilight. Oh boy. Mormon soft porn. In Utah they spell moron with two M's. And as my one close friend told me " Bella needs to get a shiny frozen dildo". Couldn't have put it better than myself. 2D whiny bitch character with their own miserable cardboard lives. Then there is the eye candy. ok moving on. bla bla bla the love of beastality, fucking dead things... sounds like mormon urges to me.


The last two on my list are personal grievances. They killed some of my favorite people and they didn't kill the right asshole; Malfoy." Oh lets kill a twin!" Gee thanks... don't kill the bastard. End of story.

Discussion time!

Ok, maybe my teacher explained To Kill a Mockingbird better than yours did but the title made sense to me. I might be butchering this quote a bit and I forget who said it, maybe Atticus but someone comments how innocent mockingbirds are and- oh, wait! I think I remember! It was something like "Don't hunt mockingbird because they don't bring you harm. All they do is make music." And it was basically like don't think badly of Boo Radley when he is actually a benevolent man.

I liked the Great Gatsby mostly because the writing style is flawless. I liked Gatsby as a character even though at some points he was really just a classier Edward Cullen... Admittedly Daisy was a bad character. You think at first that she's just a tortured soul trapped in an unhappy marriage because of the need to marry a rich man but in the end she's just a bored rich woman who needed some sex and attention. Not at all like Bella Swan >.>;;; Damnit! I liked this book, ok? I thought that Nick was a realistic character and that Gatsby was an interesting chap as well. Of course it isn't without it's flaws and it was a bit of a disappointment since it had been on my to read list for so long but I still think it deserves its place as a classic.

Twilight... Hah. I think I've given my ditty on this before. And I might have to copyright that line if you keep using it.

I remember not liking the 6th Harry Potter book back when I read it in either 4th-5th (I think late 4th) because it was shorter than the 5th book. I don't remember much about it now besides the obvious stuff. Didn't read the 7th one but I know a lot of character got offed. Seriously, who kills an owl?

I thought that was the gist of it but my teacher never really made it a firm idea. But eh I dunno. I'm still iffy on that book.


The last harry potter's kinda are a disapointment. The 3rd book will always be my favorite though.

My favorite Harry Potters are the 3rd and 4th. I think that the 4th was adapted into a movie better though. C'mon, the werewolf in the 3rd one is soooo lame >> Although in the 4th movie the relationship between Ron and Hermione seems forced. But then again, I always thought it was forced, even in the book. Harry and Ginny wasn't much better... *big critic mode*

Now why didn't you like Gatsby?

Well I never had to read the book we watched a movie. Well I didn't. I ended up sick those two days but I took the test and I got an A on it. I mean i only read a summary of book. It seemed not to have much to it.



The relationship with Ron and Hermione is very forced. I personally hate how harry is in the 5th book. He's an asshole being emo. He was great in the first 4. I won't even watch the movies after 4.

The 4th movie could've had more details about the world cup. It was like world cup bam Winky in trouble. I mean the book is far better with the details and takes time in giving you the feel of the excitment of the cup. But thats my personal opinion. They didn't use the book to its full potential at that point. Granted these movies are terrible long and the 4th book is the longest of all of them.

Ok the ball was gorgeous. BEAUTIFUL.

And the 4th book brought up some serious questions.
Like obviously they go to the bathroom but I mean the author doesn't put much thought in the aspect of the showers. But then maybe she relies on the implication of everyone takes showers, silly.

And the idea of sex. Ok this is a children book but you're talking about teens here. the closest thing I think that hinted at any sexual conduct was in the 4th book when two teens were caught behind the bushes at the yule ball and Ginny's slutting around.

Psh, the ball is beautiful. You mean HERMIONE is beautiful >.>;;; Remember the band that they had? Some weird Wizard rock band. I vaguely remember them singning "Wave your hands in the air like..." Something mystical. Troll? Something. Who cares? Razz

Of course I was miffed that Dobby wasn't in the 4th movie.

Hermione can go to hell >.> She wasn't a very original character. Oooh, brainy girl who has a sharp wit and turns from ugly duckling to babe. We've never seen THAT before...

Hmm. I didn't really think Great Expectations was that good.
