  • There have been many books I don't finish, because I can't get through them, but I can't remember their names. The first poster answered Wicked....I did finish it...but really was very disappointed.

  • I absolutely loved reading My Sister's Keeper until the end. The ending was so bad (and not the same as in the movie) that I decided that it was awful. But I re-wrote it in my head and it is better that way.

  • "Wicked! So bad I couldn't finish it and that is not like me. "

    lol, I love that series :)

    The worst book I've ever read was Beyond Opinion (Ravi Zacharias). It was so intolerant and biased I ended up arguing with the whole book. You can see my notes in the margins, my frustration with the ignorance and arrogance, lol.

  • Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I forced myself through it, but it was so preachy and long winded. I mean one guy did a speech that took about 10 pages (of very small type). So bad. So very, very bad.

  • Pretty much if it's that bad, I don't finish it but have to say The Secret Garden , which was required reading when I was in Jr. High. Even told my teacher it was awful! I started Wicked 3 years ago and have yet to finish it...probably never will!

  • "The Lovely Bones" book was awful. The movie was not all that great either.
