Re: Atrocious Fiction Books
Ive liked most of Dan Brown's stuff. Though I don't understand why code is the stand out book. I think its the moat poorly written out if the group.

Besides. Anything that pisses christians off that bad is okay in my book Big Grin

The Out Crowd.

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

Yes you are, but you've been down so long it looks like up to you. Consider

Celestine Prophecy. This piece of shit might have had an interesting couple of thoughts in it - doubtful - but slogging through the childish prose was just excruciating. An unnecessary waste of good ink to paper AND being a best seller, it spawned not only sequels but companion books!

Often, when I read a piece of shit like this and realize someone was given money write it, I only want to kill myself. However, this book made me want to take others out with me.

As the saying goes; some people drink because they're poets, other people drink because they are not. This load of twat-bile would cause anyone to become a raging alcoholic because this marketed whore got some poor poet's paycheck.

I should probably have a calming cup o'coffee, huh? Undecided

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

RE: Atrocious Fiction Books
I don't read crappy books. The moment I realise something (or someone) isn't worth the time, I drop it.

99% of everything I've ever translated qualifies, though (one that really stands out is J.R. Ward Blackdagger Brotherhood series, but pretty much every erotica book I've done has been equally bad. I think it must be a genre requirement). If anyone requires proof, feel free to browse through the ranting thread, for some particularly smelly nuggets of crap. Dodgy

(Still, even my crappy books cannot compete with the bilge in the 46-virgin thread. I don't think even bleach would help. It's hard to believe that something so unimaginably retarded can make me feel so dirty.)

As for Dan Brown, I'm with Stephen Fry on that (applies to so many writers - and would-be writers - it's not even funny): "It is complete loose stool water. It is arse-gravy of the worst kind."

Ha - I remember that one - I laughed so hard it hurt my face. Shy

I have a hard time getting through 5 pages of any book in my mother's collections. What she reads isn't really my problem either.

Like Twilight? Tongue

Although I don't know why you'd read an "atrocious book." Big Grin
