Carol cynics-it's lonely out there...


message 2: by Kelly (new)

Kelly Well, well, well. This is indeed new to me, someone who doesn't like Lorrie Moore or Strout? Wow.


message 3: by Kelly (new)

Kelly Too true Carol, too true.

message 4: by Barbara (new)

Barbara Rodenberg Hmmm. Twilight and The Book of Mormon are on the list Best Books Ever, and Olive Kitteridge is on the Books Not to Read List. Makes me wonder about the readers here.

I'm right there with you.


message 6: by JK (new)

JK Perhaps there are different groups voting on different lists? =O SHOCK!


message 7: by Pat (new)

Pat That's one of the best things about Goodreads...you hear from all kinds of people about all kinds of books. Wouldn't reading be boring if all books were adored by everyone!


message 8: by JK (new)

JK Same here. It's nice being able to see both sides about books. If someone tells me how awesome something is, I also want to know the bad and vice versa.


message 9: by Ankur (new)

Ankur Animal Farm is on this list!! And I do not care to look further.


message 10: by Teresa (new)

Teresa Let me get this straight - someone wasted their time and energy putting together a list of books they hated? Wow.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads More like 136 people so far.


message 12: by Morrow (new)

Morrow I'd really like to know why the Harry Potter series is up here.


message 13: by ash (new)

ash hc Why is HP there and Philppa Gregory and The Mistress of Nothing? I'm not judging, just asking...
