Because I don't think we've had enough arguments lately.

I've just been bitching about Atlas Shrugged, so you know that one wins for me.

So, what do you guys hate???

I read half of The Fault in Our Stars. It was very bad. I like Looking for Alaska much more.

I also don't like the Percy Jackson series.

The first PJ book was interesting, but the series abandoned the whole Classical Greek/Contemporary America juxtaposition for some really banal prophecies.

I can hardly stand The Great Gatsby, though.

Where's the edgy "the bible" comment?

Somewhere else because this forum is for responsible adults?

I might have put down the bible if I actually read it. I haven't read many genuinely bad books because I simply don't read many books.

The Binle is a literary accomplishment even if it is morally outdated. I went to church conferences and summer schools, and consequently sat through hours of (sometimes interminable) analysis. Its language, especially in the King James version, has such a sense of primordial declaritive power to it. Its text is rich and layered with subtle meanings and implications. Not a fan of the stuff by Paul or the chapters of endless genealogy ( and x begat y and lived to an age of abc, and begat more sons and daughters), but the Old Testament and gospels are an accomplishment. I can't say I enjoy it, but I have to give credit where it's due.

Some of Jesus' quips about not being a dick are useful.

The King James translation of The Bible is one of the most important documents ever committed to paper...

As for me, most of the books I despise are easy targets; Fifty Shades, Twilight and the like. I also like to peruse local bookstores, and there are a good few young adult novels that revolted me so much after a couple of paragraphs that I had to put them down.

I have SPECIAL hatred for every piece of drivel that dreadful fuckwit of a hack Nicholas Sparks ever crafted. I am also hardly a fan of Paulo Coelho.
