    Digital Fortress is one of the stupidest books I have ever read. The plot is totally predictable. I can't help laughing at Dan Brown's retardedness when I read this book. But the Da Vinci Code is pretty well written though.

    I had to read Wuthering Heights for school a few years back. It was absolutely boring! I ended up reading the first 2 chapters, then threw the book into a dark corner of my room. *thinks to self, "so that would nbe why I failed that test...??"*

    It's a horrible book. Don't ever read it to your kids, now or in the future.

    Anyone remember the Goosebumps series? When I was little, a particularly stupid one was called "Beast from the East." As for books I've read lately, I didn't necessarily think it was stupid, but I hated Brom Stoker's Dracula.

    The Scarlet Letter I hated this book, it was so stupid and boring, then if that wasn't enough I had to watch the movie, and it sucked even more.

    The Great Gatsby...Diary of Anne Frank...Watership Down...The Scarlet Letter....these aren't bad books. Just because you didn't enjoy reading them, that doesn't mean that there's no merit to the books whatsoever. (Yes, I have read each of those.) Heck, even the long-winded Moby Dick had many interesting philisophical themes.

    If you want to read books that are bad, as in badly written, try Eragon. X_X There was a lot of hype about this book so I read it, and wow, was it predicting! Just a few complaints:
    -Foreshadowing, both often and obvious, even to the extent that the main character goes to a fortune teller so we get to know everything about the trilogy in advance
    -Stereotypical characters. There's nothing wrong with using stereotypes as long as the stereotype helps the character, not hinder them. Characters derived from similar molds must always be their own person. Not so with this book; the naive young boy who will one day save the world, the wise old man, the exotic elf princess, the power-mad king--yup, they're all here.
    -Farmboys using SAT vocabulary
    -Virtually every permutation of the word "said" is used here, and inappropriately at that. Reading ' "Sorry," apologized Brom' made me cringe.
    -Poorly written action scenes
    -Unnecessary description

    I could go on, but I don't want to take up too much of your space ^_^

    The Misfits is the worst book that i've ever read, everything went way too perfectly and the plot was really corny and stupid.

    This is just personal opinion, and IMO the Scarlet Letter was shit along with the movie, does it mean it's crap maybe not but to me it is.

    I loved that book. I seem to be the only one though.

    The worst book I've ever read was The House of Diese Drear. I read it back in 5th grade and the attempts at suspense were downright laughable to me even then. Plus I think the writer just ran out of plot and ended up tacking on one of the worse endings I've ever read.
