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 is it because it was THAT bad??
I have a pretty bad habit that if I don't like a book, I won't finish it.
Life is too short to read a bad book!
That said, there are a few books that I would go back and "unread" simply because I had to read them and HATED them.
I know a lot of people liked "Little Bee" By Chris Cleave, but I most definitely was not one of them.
This book is honestly one of the most confusing, depressing, and just plain sad stories that I have read in a long, long time...if ever. The synopsis in no way resembles the book I just put down. The blurb makes you think it will be funny...or charming...or will leave you smiling.
The story drags on with random references to something that happened on the beach. Throughout the story it is revealed that the Englishwoman had cheated on her husband for most of their marriage and the events of the beach are tortuously released. I felt most of the characters were unlikeable and I just didn't care what happened to them. The story just kept revealing sad things and there was absolutely no resolution. The story just ends, no conflict resolution....nothing.
I must have missed the appeal of this one. Oprah chose this book as one of the best books from 2009. In no way would I have finished this book if this wasn't a book club book. I would give this book 1 Star out of 5...I simply didn't care for it!
Still to this day, I honestly cannot see the appeal of this one. Murder, rape, genocide, suicide, physical abuse and no happy ending...it was just a tad too much for me.
What book would you unread?
