I had the chance to write about my 10 favorite books and oh how I’m glad that I can write about my least favorite books. It’s been awhile since I ranted about a book that I dislike since most of the time, these books either receive good reviews or is overrated.
Yes I fell into the hype in high school (all the girls gushing how great it is). Yes, I will admit I literally sat at Borders reading this book (wasted 8 hours of my time). And yes I watched the movies
Having read so many books I am entitled to judge a book and say if it’s well written or not and Twilight is most definitely not.I disliked Bella (no backbone, annoying, a one dimensional character whose life literally just revolved around Edward, Edward, and even more Edward!) When I read a book, I expect the characters (main or side characters) to have some character development and someone that I get attached to and feel for.I just don’t like hero or heroines with zero personality.
It’s classic literature so it must be good, right? Unfortunately, I do not share the similar sentiment in regards to this book. This is my first William Faulkner novel and probably my last. The moment I read the first page I knew I should have just thrown the book and burned it because it was that frustrating of a read.
It’s well-written with the use of flowery language but what good is that when you, as a reader have no idea what the heck is going on.(yes I went to SparkNotes to gain a better understanding of the premise of the novel ). So when I read reviews on this book I automatically come up with two conclusions: 1. I’m a complete idiot or 2. No one wants to admit that they don’t have a damn clue what Faulkner is talking about, therefore, comes to the conclusion that it must be brilliant and amazing written work.)
I don’t really like reading chick-lit books (nothing against them but just really not my cup of tea) but I gave this a try.I mentioned that I like characters that I can sympathize for; however, I’m disappointed to say that the main character Rachel (I really tried to understand her for doing what she did)but to my dismay I ended hating her until the very end (spineless and annoying). But what really irked me about this book was the overall message which is basically this: As long as your best friend is a self-absorbed b*tch, it’s okay to sleep with her fiance.Really, really?!!Oh and I don’t care if you met him first!The fiance was annoying too.(cheating asshole)
When you wholeheartedly love a series for the first two books and only left to be disappointed at the final installment I wouldn’t know what to say. I love the Divergent series, but Veronica Roth made me angry with how she ended it.
I’ve read books with tragic endings and having a valid reason for it and it is acceptable. However, for me I couldn’t accept the fact that Tris had to die. I think she has suffered enough as it is. I get it, she’s selfless and giving but why, WHY VERONICA ROTH?!! I can’t even write coherently in regards to this because I’m upset. If I could take it back I would have just stopped reading the series at Insurgent. Although I would still watch the final movie.
I know Kurt Vonnegut is a great author, but this book just didn’t do it for me.
