RE: Atrocious Fiction Books
Symphony of Ages (fantasy series). I've read many awful fantasy books, but that one I remember because Rhapsody's singing (a magical talent) plays a big part in the series, but when it comes to describing what she was doing, the description was essentially 'Rhapsody sang'. What, death metal? Was she saying words, or just going 'Lalalalala'? It was a pretty damned important aspect of the book. If you're going to make something central to the story, it deserves better treatment than that.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

Twilight. I read three pages from the first book and I already went into "Fuck that shit" mode.

I agree-It was such a disappointment. I didn't read books 2 & 3.

The books by Anne Rice (under the pseudonym of A. N. Roquelaure) wrote were much more erotic and twisted.

The sleeping beauty series?

I have them on my kindle I think. Smile

RE: Atrocious Fiction Books
Being a middle school teacher I try to read a lot of what the kids read, at least the major stuff, because I hope it interests them in reading, etc. A lot of it I enjoyed. Harry Potter, Hunger Games, etc. All perfectly fine, and pretty enjoyable. When the big Twilight sensation hit I figured I would try it (even though from what I had heard I was already scratching my head). Like someone else said in this thread, I got literally only 20 pages into it and put that shit down. Wow, it was just terrible.

Ethan Frome, what a horrible book. It's about the most depressing thing I can think of, the entire novel is grey, uneventful, and grating. The main character is a henpecked wimp who can't seem to do anything at all. When he finally does manage to do 1 thing it ends up making everything worse somehow. If New England was anything at all like it is described in this I can't imagine that anyone would willingly stay for any length of time.

Surprised no one's mentioned ol' Dan Brown... I read Chapter 1 of Da Vinci Code and just about threw up... a few years later a mate was reading Angels and Demons so I tried again... same result.

New England is exactly like that. We're all miserable wretches. Weeping

Yes! The Sleeping Beauty series....it was....not like anything I had ever read before...Shocking...kindle is great for erotic books, no one knows you are reading them because they can't see the cover. Cool
