This week's question is:
Q. Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?
Oh Lord. I have 4.
A Fortunate Age- The first really bad book of my blogging career. I could barely finish it. The characters were abrasive and obnoxious and the storyline was inconsistent.
Prospect Park West- I always love books about New York so I figured I would love this. But it was just a bunch of self-centered idiots with Mommybrain and their exploits in an apartment complex. I never believed in the existence of Mommybrain until I read this book.
Impossible Motherhood-On the other end of the spectrum, I could not even get through this book but for the rage. She had 15 abortions. Fifteen! I am all for a woman’s right to choose but 15 abortions is abusing the right. A right that has been fought for and people have lost their lives over. This woman could have easily used birth control. She just chose not to. And for that reason, I could not sympathize with her. Not one bit. I not only could not keep this book in my house, I did not even donate it. I left it on the subway.
The Da Vinci Code-I HATE this book with a passion. I don’t think I dislike any book on the planet more than I dislike this one. It was terrible. I gave my copy away to the library and vowed to never touch another Dan Brown book again.
Blogger Confession: What's the last book you could not finish? (or had a hard time finishing?)I have loved most books by Isabel Allende but I did not like this one very much. It’s the only book in the last couple of years that I have had to struggle through. I finished it but the whole time, I was a couple of pages from throwing the book away.
Speaking of books that I wanted to burn. Impossible Motherhood made me want to light the book aflame. It made me so angry that I had trouble finishing it. It was the single worst reading experience of my life.
