Moon People, by the very talented mr. Dale Courtney. I want to read it, but I sure as hell don't want to pay for it.

Dear god...

That was actually published?!?!? The editor for that book should be shot and if it was lacking an editor (which is probably more likely considering the horrendous quality) then the publisher should be shot.

-Not Necro.

My eyes bled at looking at the first page of that Moon People image... I think the author was foreign and hated commas...

I don't think I've ever read a bad book, I never finish them, always stop after a page or two if it doesn't 'hook' me.

The book Divina Trace,

I can sort of understand why the book uses swears like every other sentence but when you spend a good 3 pages describing how a man was able to sustain an erection for 3 days...yea....Did I mention I'm reading this for school?

I was going to take stephen king but got tricked into reading this garbage

It still won something so your argument is invalid.

Hmm...

The worst that I can remember having to read was To Kill a Mockingbird.  I get what it was supposed to be about and all, but the majority of the book just seems like pointless filler.  I mean, in the middle of the freaking climax in the courtroom the kids decide they're bored and walk outside, and the narrator f***ing follows them.  I'm sorry, but a story about a black guy getting the f*** lawyered out of him should focus on that aspect, even if it is supposedly seen through the eyes of the kids.  If they're going to leave, do it when nothing significant is going on.

The runner up would be, sadly, Romeo & Juliet.  I mean, I understand the old english perfectly, but that's not my problem with it.  Sure, it was good for its time, but nowadays it's so predictable it's almost hilarious.  Not to mention the lack of realism, no 14 year old kid would do so much in order to get married, Elizebethan times or not.  Of course, there's also the fact that the play was based off an old folktale that was popular at the time.  It was even old when it was new, and that's saying something.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

TKAM was decent, IMO. As for romeo and juliet, I think of it as more of a story showing how lustful sin can lead to tragic endings.

I thought it was about how kids are stupid, and family feuds are bad.

And I did like To Kill a Mockingbird.  The story is about more than the dad's trial, it's also about the kids growing up and their interactions with certain people in town.
Probably not a Goat, either.
