Evidently not all books are good.
I want to know what is the worst book you've ever read.

Mine is Benjamin Lebert's Crazy [the sickest book ever, (had to read it for school)]

The Hobbit was good, or at least I thought so.
But I do agree with what you said about if Bilbo really cared about his house.
not Twilight, though I wish it were..(not that it were worse, that I had never read the others.)
Actually, it was a tie:
Black Beauty:
-for school
-really in your face with the anti alcohol message (bold and italics, seriously?)
-over two hundred pages about a stupid horse.
-I usually dislike animal books, but this one takes the cake, slimey and maggot infested as it is.

Wolf Tower:
-aka "The Book That Nearly Killed Fantasy"
-One of those stupid "just kidding" endings, but it wasn't even a surprise.
-if there was a plot contest between it and an episode of the wiggles, the demented australian singers would win.
-all the characters were pathetic, pathetic and annoying, pathetic and annoying and perfect.
-any hint of suspense was always killed in the next sentence.
(heck, at least it was short-ish!)
I haven't read many books that made me want to puke, so I don't have a totally awful thing to write about. But I did read this book for a book group once- Private Captain. It wasn't the Worst Book I Ever Read, per say, but I didn't enjoy reading it. It was somewhat boring and lengthy.
i don't read a book if i think it's rubbish. i give it so many pages and thats it.
Anthem by Ayn Rand
Dickens has to be read on your terms, not on a deadline for a course. I don't know why they still teach it when everyone knows that it would take months to properly analyse the novel. And by months I mean like, two-and-a-half.
I read Great Expectations my freshmen year. I had a great teacher and he spend around three months going over the 600+ page novel.
The Ringworld Throne. The original Ringworld was quite good and the passages in the Ringworld Engineers concerning addiction were well written but this installment is shit. I have a fundamental problem with unplanned sequels. Hyperion Cantos was always meant to be four books so the writer had it all planned out. Niven however wrote this one in a few months after he failed to come up with a decent plot for a third Integral Trees novel. He had a contract to fulfill so he pulled a James Patterson and churned out this load of garbage. Every time I fell self-conscious about my writing I simply open to any page of Throne and remind myself that It was printed three times and sold tens of thousands of copies.

Never ever read this book.
Damn, I'm going to have to read that junior year.
I had to read it for my Honors 11 summer work. Hatredddddd. You might like it though. As I hate To Kill a Mockingbird, I think I have slightly off hatred of books.
Hated it. Pretty unrelateable, plot was uninteresting, and the more romanticized elements of the story (Hester being able to see the sins of others or something) weren't consistent throughout.
