Booking Through Thursday - March 19
How about, “What’s the worst ‘best’ book you’ve ever read — the one everyone says is so great, but you can’t figure out why?”
There have been a few books that got a lot of hype that I didn't really like. One that comes to mind is Naked by David Sedaris. I guess I just didn't like him. It wasn't enjoyable for me to read at all. My friends have been recommending other books by him but I'm just politely refusing.
Wicked by Gregory Maguire is another one. I didn't care for the book at all. I thought it was too full of politics and frankly I didn't like Elphaba. She was a horrible person, especially with her treatment of her son. That being said, I've seen the musical and absolutely loved it. It's quite different from the book and in all good ways.
