Annemarie Carlson (annielawlz) | 62 comments So everyone talks about what books they have read and liked, well here post books that were terrible.


message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

I used 2 like The Catcher in the Rye, but it makes me feel sick now.


message 3: by Annemarie (new)

Annemarie Carlson (annielawlz) | 62 comments why?


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Because the man who murdered john lennon shot him(lennon)4 times in the back, sat down, and proceeded 2 read the Catcher in the Rye until the police arrested him.

Antigone. That was the most depressing thing I've ever read. Everyone either commits suicide or is abandoned.

message 11: by Annemarie (new)

Annemarie Carlson (annielawlz) | 62 comments I hate when some books start out really good then the ending or the middle or whatever sucked.

message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

duznt every1? like, sum1 says, i loved this book, the good start was amazing, but the sucky ending made me give it 5 stars!


message 14: by Ruchi (new)

Ruchi (ohlookitsruchi) Hmm.
The Twilight Series- incredibly anti feminist.
Gossip Girl- What the hell? Just what the hell?
Artemis Fowl- Maybe I read this too late, but I found it horribly boring. I couldn't even get past four chapters.

I didn't mind the Twilight series. It's not my favorite, but it wasn't painful. I've never bothered to read Gossip Girl...or watch the show. I could care less about drama. I never read Artemis Fowl either.


message 16: by Ruchi (new)

Ruchi (ohlookitsruchi) This is a great opening for a Twilight hating session, but I will abstain :P


message 17: by Catie , Well I had to be the Goddess of something! (new)

Catie  | 150 comments Mod
Do not even get me started about the twilight haters.


message 18: by Ruchi (new)

Ruchi (ohlookitsruchi) Nothing wrong with a little hating ;>


message 19: by Annemarie (new)

Annemarie Carlson (annielawlz) | 62 comments my opinions exactly.


message 20: by Catie , Well I had to be the Goddess of something! (new)

Catie  | 150 comments Mod
I'm fine with that it's just most of you don't even know what you hate about it!!!


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 104 comments Mod
I know exactly what I hate about it.


message 22: by Catie , Well I had to be the Goddess of something! (new)

Catie  | 150 comments Mod
What.


message 23: by Annemarie (new)

Annemarie Carlson (annielawlz) | 62 comments Does it have anything to do with a certain japanese theatre company?

If it did, then I would be burning them. XD

Catie, it's all romance...nothing but romance. There's about 2 chapters that have something besides romance, but the romance in those chapters drowns out the little bit of action that we actually get to see.


message 25: by Catie , Well I had to be the Goddess of something! (new)

Catie  | 150 comments Mod
Okay. I can understand that. I enjoy the romance.


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 104 comments Mod
I like romance, just as long as there is enough of other genres to keep the romance from overpowering the story.


message 27: by Annemarie (new)

Annemarie Carlson (annielawlz) | 62 comments i like horror and a lot of other stuff.


message 28: by Catie , Well I had to be the Goddess of something! (new)

Catie  | 150 comments Mod
See I think there is enough other stuff for you not to be overwhelmed by it there is...
Sacrifice
Loalty
Trusting
Pain
Good vs. Evil
Mythology
History



Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 104 comments Mod
Sacrifice, Loalty, Trusting, Pain, Good vs. Evil: these are themes, not genres.

Mythology: the Twilight vampires aren't like the vampires of myths at all

History: very, very, very, very, very little history.


message 30: by Annemarie (new)

Annemarie Carlson (annielawlz) | 62 comments if thier was more history then i would like it better

What horror stuff do you like?


message 32: by Annemarie (new)

Annemarie Carlson (annielawlz) | 62 comments Lois Duncan, Cirque du Freak, oh I cant believe this is happening my mind is a total blank, I can only think of those two right now, sorry.


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 104 comments Mod
That's okay. I've had those two recommended to me quite a bit. I think I have a Lois Duncan book that I stole from my brother (he owns so many books, but NEVER READS! It's such a waste) and I've been meaning to read it.


message 34: by Summer (new)

Summer | 11 comments lol. I haven't read twilight and I don't think I'd like it very much from what your saying rachel. in contrast I loved Hatchet. I like survival shows in stuff. just crazy like that. but I hated the Uglies series! so random, repetitive, and long with out a whole lot of stuff I found usefull. goodness! I got to Specials for clossure.

Amelia, free market Puritan (aeimaginer12) hiii im amelia :DD
i hated catcher in the rye and like every single greek tragedy play/book i've ever had to read! hmmm the last book i read and just absolutely HATED was wicked lovely but i try really hard not to read a book if i think i wont like it!


message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

I don't like the 4th book in A Series of Unfortunate Events . The Miserable Mill is what it's called! I love the other books, but that book was a waste of my time!!!!!!!

Ugh--Greek tragedies. Antigone has scarred me for life.


Amelia, free market Puritan (aeimaginer12) hahaha i had to read oedipus rex last year...eww.


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 104 comments Mod
We had a narrative version of that in our freshman year summer reading so that we could understand Antigone. Oedipus has also scarred me for life.


message 42: by Amelia, free market Puritan (last edited Oct 18, 2009 03:38PM) (new)

Amelia, free market Puritan (aeimaginer12) man those greeks were messed up! i can do the myths, the heroes, and the gods/goddesses, but not those tragedy plays!!! ugghhh
my mom, who is an english teacher, says it like this [im not kidding:]: if it's greek, and it's not in the Percy Jackson series, it's not important!



Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 104 comments Mod
I love the myths so much. The Greeks had problems. That's all I learned from reading Antigone.


message 44: by Summer (new)

Summer | 11 comments b4 anybody had these issues with catcher in the rye was it good?


message 45: by [deleted user] (new)

no. it made me sick before i read it because i knew the bad stuff b4 i read it. i wanted 2 c if it was any good. i liked the idea b4 i learned the bad stuff. then i learned the bad stuff. i cant read it w/o feeling physically ill.
