Ender's Shadow by Orson Scott Card... I thoroughly loved Ender's Game, but I felt the series got weaker as it went on. And Ender's Shadow's retcon on a few things IMHO takes away from the original book.

Donnerjack, by Roger Zelazny and Jane Lindeskold. Mostly Lindeskold. The syllables/word count is higher than most drug names. it doesn't help.

If a book still sucks for me by page 50, I stop reading. Ergo, I haven't read any truly horribly books. ;) However, I own several books that just look horrible. My grandmother had lame tastes, apparently.

Oooh, actually, my Greek textbook is pretty evil. I could make my enemies study it the same way I did... only they're not as linguistically overskilled as I am! :twisted:

90 Trillion Fausts by Jack Chalker
I loved the concepts in The Demons at Rainbow Bridge and its sequel, The Run to Chaos Keep still managed to amuse me, but the final book was terribly executed. I'm starting to think that Chalker shouldn't be allowed to finish his own series. Simply put, he takes a great idea and f***s it all up.
Despite all that, I highly recommend the first book.

Either The Red Badge of Courage, Great Expectations, or Grapes of Wrath. I had to buy these books and read them in high school. The worst had to be GoW though. God was it boring...

I also had to read Common Sense by Thomas Paine for a US History course. That was terrrible. It was only 100 pages, and I still didn't finish it.

Oh! Or Uncle Tom's Cabin! I never got through that one either. It's amazing that I still got an 84 on the essay I had to write afterwards when I read about 100 of the 400+ pages.

Now that's not to say that everything I read in high school was terrible. I enjoyed The Scarlet Pimpernel and had a newfound respect for Shakespere by the end of grade 12 (Hamlet is my favourite play), but most of the stuff we had to read was just awful

The Scarlet Letter was just as bad. The author was so busy beating the reader over the head with symbolism that he lost track of the story he was trying to write.

And something more modern that I found distastful was Mercedes Lackeys' Fire Rose. Normally I think she's an incredible author but this time she fell flat.

The Scarlet Pimpernel was a wonderful read and surprisingly well written and well paced. This one I do have to recomend everybody to read
