Carl I. | 608 comments This is from the Fantasy Book Club here on Goodreads, as created by Robin. Following are her words edited to make sense for our board here.

"There is a great list of books in TNBBC (The Next Best Book Club) that has resulted in "the creme of the crop". It is built by members adding 1 - AND ONLY ONE. Item to the list. Basically take the list repost it and add one.

The "Best Book" is a single book - can be "in a series" or stand alone. Because you can only add one item the list really showcases some of the best books ever. So think carefully about what you put on each list because once you post you can't re-post."


I'll start:
Carrion Comfort - Dan Simmons

message 41: by Rusty (new)

Rusty (rustyshackleford) | 134 comments As usual, I'm bringing up the rear (that doesn't sound right) with 7. I started Something Wicked recently, but, as usually happens with Bradbury, the book pissed me off for some reason, so I stopped.

LOL. I have never heard anyone say that Bradbury pissed them off. What did he do?


message 43: by Rusty (new)

Rusty (rustyshackleford) | 134 comments Tressa, I can’t quite put my finger on it. I don’t know if it was because he depicted every character as a philosopher poet, or painted everything with a bit too much nostalgia, but I just got annoyed. And as unhelpful as that explanation was, I really have no idea why “Martian Chronicles” pissed me off. I guess it’s like two people who rub each other the wrong way, without knowing why or how. I just can’t read Bradbury.

Tressa  (moanalisa) | 19935 comments Rusty, in Danse Macabre Stephen King writes that he admires SWTWC, but even he admits that the boy characters and the father (or grandfather?) are too saccharine and wise for their own good. I think that got tedious for him.
