Johnny With a rating above 3.6 and the median rating being 4/5, not to mention well over 140.000 ratings on Goodreads alone, it would seem reasonable to conclude that if you think that this book is "so bad", respectfully, that would be a "you" problem, buddy.

Now if you have any articulable issues with the book, I'm sure many people here would be more than happy to have a pleasant conversation and see what the points of agreement and disagreement are. Not every book is for everyone, but if it isn't the book for you when most other people who've read it disagree, the issue probably isn't the book.
Benjamin W Rather subjective question but I don't see it as bad. Simplistic perhaps but you would have to elaborate on what you think is bad.
