What’s the worst ‘best’ book you’ve ever read — the one everyone says is so great, but you can’t figure out why?
Most recently, On Beauty by Zadie Smith. I found this to be an absolutely horrible read. I am one of those people that will usually stick it out to the very end once I start a book. But this one ... it was so awful I don't even think I made it to the 50 page mark. Before reading it I had read so much good press about Smith. This novel was shortlisted for the Man Booker and won the Orange prize. But wow! I thought it was a stinker.
