This week's question:
Q: If you could “unread” a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?
I couldn't pick just one but I did narrow it down to two. The first is Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. Sometimes a topic is so disturbing that it should not only never be a topic of conversation let alone the entire subject of a book. Call me crazy but child rape and murder is at the top of the list. I found this book to be gratuitous and ridiculous and just because the topic is shocking does not mean that you are a good author. The second is Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. I was brought up to believe this was a classic and one of the best literary pieces of the 20th century. FYI, it BLOWS!!!!! It's the story of a privileged, spoiled, shallow brat who spends the entire book feeling sorry for himself. I'd read Twilight again 10 times instead of reading either of these books! TEAM EDWARD!!!
