I picked that one only about three posts up.

Unacceptable

Agreed. I couldn't even finish the first couple of chapters. I remember reading it and thinking, "How is this a-hole a best-selling author?"

I read that book in one sitting and put it down at the end and thought "this might be my favorite book of all time."

Mich, I'm curious as to why you thought Their Eyes Were Watching God was terrible? I've never read it, but it's on my to-read shelf due to high recommendations.

Would be interested to hear why people hate The Grapes of Wrath. The plot? Steinbeck's writing style? The inner chapters? I recently read it again and was blown away by it...again. Not questioning anyone's judgment, just curious.

Had to read that in 9th grade English. Made me want to slit my wrists just trying to grind through every page. Awful. No redeeming characters or ideas. To this day I have no idea how or why it made it onto a school reading list.

Burn in Hell, Diane Arrinder for wasting like 25 hours of my life that I will never get back.

Most of these business books are like that. They turn a short motivational speech into a 200 page book by citing examples and saying the same things over and over.

Very first book I thought of. Don’t get me wrong, the writing was fine but I just hated the story and it depressed the hell out of me.
