it was ok
Read in April, 2003

The third worst book I have ever read. I just cannot stand main characters who portray themselves as perpetually victimized, while refusing to take any responsibility for removing themselves from the victim-state. It didn't help that I felt the author intentionally 'crafted' her characters to be as pathetic as possible, then framed the story in such a way as to imply the reader has no right to condemn any of them for their decisions. Insultingly bad, even for a genre (I refuse to call this anything but 'chicklit') that has set the bar pretty low.

April What are the other two books? I hated this one as well!

SmarterLilac At the time I read this, I think the worst books I can remember reading were Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones, and David Guterson's The Country Ahead of Us, the Country Behind, which has the distinction of being the worst book I've read from an otherwise talented novelist.

Since Good In Bed, the worst published thing I've encountered is Glen Beck's Arguing With Idiots. It reminds me of a comic book. Written by a fascist.

Jamie I totally agree!
