Book Unrecommendations - Books To Avoid
I said someone should start a list of books that they hated so I thought I might as well be the one to start it. I guess this isn't for books that are universally deemed to be bad, but books that someone seems to like (at least the publisher) and you found it to be pretty awful.
I'll start with Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norell. This was recommended to me by my best friend (!) and I thought it was boring and passive. Apparently I am alone.
