    I'm sure we've all read some terrible books in our time (free ebooks, I'm looking at you), but what's the worst book you've ever read, and why was it so bad?

    It's long, boring, and everyone's always angry.

    Noo! So romantic... heartbreaking...

    An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. I read it in two hours and thought "wow I can't believe I wasted two hours reading that."

    The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns both by John Green. Pointless drivel for the self-obsessed teenager.

    "Killer in the Common Room" by Roger Douglas.

    My best friends father wrote a trilogy after he retired from a lifelong career teaching at Cranbrook school in Kent.

    Utterly dire. We never had the heart to tell him though. I think he knew, but that did not matter because he did something he had always wanted to do and we were proud of him for achieving that before he died.

    That's how I felt about Wuthering Heights, apart from this was over the course of 6 weeks...

    I second this. Read it because of all the hype, instant regrets on wasting two weeks of my life on the trilogy. :yawn:

    And Shakespeare! I don't get why it's so revered
    It was written by a bloke who was usually stoned in the way they spoke back then.
    It's nothing special. Let it go!!
