What’s the worst ‘best’ book you’ve ever read — the one everyone says is so great, but you can’t figure out why?
I have no idea. At all.
Most of the books I read, I like. I'm super picky about what I read nowadays because, since I'm not reading as much as I used to, to read a bad book would be a horrible waste of time.
A while ago though, I tried to read Jellicoe Road and didn't get into it at all. I guess that's my answer. Everyone says that it's amazing and that you just have to stick around until the end where everything falls into place but reading it was so extremely confusing and boring that I couldn't bring myself to finish.
Maybe I have no will. Maybe I should have stuck with it. But, to me, that was a bad book.
