I sure hope that everyone who reads Pride and Prejudice based on my recommendation likes it. If you don't, then I suggest you read something like.......................................................... Hmm. I was going to suggest some really dumb book for you dummies who don't like Pride and Prejudice, but I can't think of one. Maybe because I don't read dumb books. Does that mean that a book is good because I read it? Yeah. I guess so.

The dumbest one I can think of is one I cannot remember the name of. About a girl who pretends to have amnesia and this weird old man says that she is his daughter and she goes along with it because I guess she doesn't want to break character and there is something about some valuable necklace and I don't know, but that girl was an idiot. I almost wish she had died in the end, just to teach her a lesson. And I know that at least one of you will be saying to yourself "Hey! That is my favorite book!" And for that I am sorry. To each his own.

So, I'm curious? What is the dumbest book you have ever read? A book you got to the end of and said to yourself "Why did I even finish that thing? Why did I devote any time to so much stupidness? Why? WHY?"

  1. Oh, goodness, I can't even remember. I haven't really read a lot of books since college.

  2. It's a curse of mine... I HAVE to finish reading what I start, usually right then. So I can't remember the last book that I didn't finish. Alas that means that there are a lot of stupid books I've read. Refuse to give any titles since I would not want anyone else to be subject them either.

  3. I just read a a dumb book. Magic Street by Orson Scott Card. USUALLY, I love him. This time? Not so much. But I had to know how it ended, because I'm dumb like that.

  4. Dear John by Nicholas Sparks. Totaly waste of time. Sorry for those of you who like Nicholas Sparks. I have only read one other of his and it was decent, but this one? Yeah, disappointment.

  5. You're gonna love this, Elesa. The dumbest book I ever read was Pride and Prejudice. Trina gave it to me as a gift. After suffering through the whole thing I complained that it was just a bunch of words! hahahahaha. Surely to each his own! My favorite book I just read twice and can't wait to read again was the Alchemist! Love that book!

  6. Oh, Scorchi, that makes me laugh and laugh. I have heard lots of good things about the Alchemist though, so maybe I will give it a try.

  7. I have never read Pride and Prejudice because everything I have heard about it makes me want to leave this planet and never look back. OH! And the movie was excruciating, all 3 minutes that I watched!!

    My favorite book is called: "The loneliest monster truck." by Willy Everstop.

    The dumbest book I ever read was called "Geometry" I really hated it, and I had to finish it because of situational constraints.

  8. Diary of a Wimpy Kid was one. And I didn't really love Chickens in the Headlights, even though everyone around me exclaimed over it. I guess I empathized too much with the poor mother of those boys. There was some church history in England novel that I hated, but I had to find out how it turned out. Can't remember the name. Stone (something), I think.

    Oh, speaking of Card, he has much dumber ones than Magic Street. I just read Space Boy, and that was pretty dumb. But not his worst.

  9. I can't remember the last bad book I've read. Probably because I'm so good at judging books by their covers.

  10. Twilight, Who Moved My Cheese, Johnathan Livingston Seagull, or The Rules...it's a toss up.
