      I know this is the excellent book thread, but what book did you read that was so bad you don't know how it got published?

      I'm in a book club and each month we get together at that month's host house to discuss our monthly book. This book still has us laughing at how bad it was –

      The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender. OMGeeee! Horrible! The premiss sounded so good, but man bad bad bad!

      The Gathering by Anne Enright. Jumping Jahillsafat! This was sooooo bad!

              One book that I thought sucked was Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs. He tried to sell that as an absolute true story, and there were just WAY too many farfetched happenings for one book. I believe that it's BASED on his childhood, but there is NO WAY all that shit happened.

                I totally agree with Rae about 50 Shades.

                And hmmmmmm…….

                  Lol Rae! I love how you describe Running ;) If it comes up as a book club possibility I will be sure to shoot the sucker down!

                  Believe me, Lemon Cake makes 50 read like Gone With The Wind! There are no words.

                  John Grisham's The Confession and David Baldacci's One Summer were both crap. I couldn't finish either one of them.

                  The worst book I ever read was about 40 years ago. I don't remember the name. I never got past the first 4 or 5 pages and I threw it in the trash. The back cover made it sound like it would be such a suspense thriller. The suspense was in wondering if the author knew how to write anything but the F word!

                    LOL LOL, OK I loved 50 Shades, pure trash but I loved it.

                    "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                        I haven't read either of these, but I think that sometimes this best selling authors get complete piles published just because of their name, and everyone is just supposed to love them. Even Stephen King has published complete crap- remember Dolores Claiboe? I got about 50 pages into that, and NOTHING was happening except this old lady shitting herself. PASS.

                        lol! You are cracking me up! If I get a book I don't like then I can't even finish it and for the life of me I sure can't remember the name of it. It was crap so I can't remember the title! I read for enjoyment only. No way I will read through a crap book.

                          I loved all three of the 50 Shades book and really like them. I can't think of any that I've read being crappy but I'm sure there were some.

                          I agree. I can't remember the name of a book I didn't like, and that is because I put it down and forgot about it!
