lord of the rings-super drawn out-but i loved the themes
Jane Austen-way too bureaucratic-you have to respect a complicated love story
Frank Herbert-extremely powerful wayy to complex for an 8yr old. (when i first read it ;))-but the best sci-fi you will find anywhere
lord of the flies-utterly ridiculous
worst overall?
the bloody war books i have had to read for school. like the "things they carried". man it gets boring when the 3rd guy dies. then they just keep on dyin!! seconded only to "a history of the middle east" my god i love history but i do not know what i was reading half the time

Without a doubt, the worst book I have EVER read would be an obscure Australian book called 'The Republic of Trees' by a sicko/author names Sam Tyler (no relationship to Life on Mars) . . . it was disgusting and disturbing, and not in a good George Orwell way . . . I was given it as a cheapy prize from a dodgy all-in party game at a mate's birthday bash so I figured that there'd be no harm in reading it . . . WRONG! This book defies words and sense. The only reason I read more was because my blind horror kept me glued to the pages. This is the only book I have ever thrown out. That was too good for it, I wanted to burn it. If you're sitting there thinking 'oh, it can't be THAT bad' then you're wrong . . . dead wrong . . . that book should never have been written let alone published! The most disturbing thing of all was that the author bio said that this man has a wife and children!!

Oh, and by the way, I'm new here! Hi!

The most boring book in my opinion was Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri.
Maybe it's classic but I just couldn't finished it. Too boring...

I also love Jane Austen. Pride and Prejudice was a good book. But I did have to read this book called, A Voyage Long and Strange: Rediscovering the New World, for my history class once and it was the most boring book EVER! It was written by a journalist, named Tony Horwitz.

Amazing! Nine pages and no mention of Thomas Hardy.

I attempted to read The Ruins... not really sure why... perhaps a hidden masochist tendancy.... I attempted it on more than one occassion... it sucked lemons both times.... never got past the first three pages.

I think the worst book I ever read was a Dean Koontz novel, but I can't remember it's name. It was sick, it gave a three page description of a shrink molesting his heavily medicated client. Weird stuff.

The worst book I think I ever read has to be Killer Angers by Michael Shaara.
We had to read it in 7th grade English, and it just put me to sleep. It wasn't a bad book, it just got on my nerves for some reason. :?:

8O Princess Academy is the most boring book ever. All the main character girl in the book talks about is woking hard to be a princess and how she works on being a princess with other girls. At the end she did not become a princess.

I bought War and Peace because I wanted to read a classic. I stopped reading it. Strange thing, it interested me and I liked it. It just didn't move quickly enough for me and I stopped reading it.

I'm in my school's book club, and last semester someone suggested we read Cut. I don't remember who it's by, but it was tiny. It really wasn't appealing in the first place. There is no resolution. No point to it. I felt like I wasted the whole 2 class periods that it took to read it.

Old Yeller is another. I saw the move hundreds of times as a kid, but couldn't read the book to save my life.

I also put down The Scarlet Letter. Hated it.
