At this moment I am trying to get through a book that is considered one of the worst books I have read in while, probably will end up in my top 10 worst of all time. Even more so then the tree sex book of 2007. And don’t forget the erotic re-telling of Phantom of the Opera by Colette Gale where Eric and Christine become really friendly with a huge harp! Not much can shock me anymore, but this book is a true “shock and awe book”. I don’t want to give anything away as of yet and I honestly can’t form a final opinion because I haven’t finished. Let’s just say I’ve been having nightmares of huge purple, pulsing, veiny penises coming to get me. Thanks Kristie(J) for that visual!
There are a few books I have read throughout the years that simply make me go “bleck.” One being a critically acclaimed novel that the first time I read, I seriously had to stop myself from being sick. It is American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis. I have tried countless times to get through this novel and I just can’t, where as my sister who reads a book maybe once every six months love this book and can’t stop raving about it. I have seen the movie with no problem, BUT the movie left out two very graphic scenes that are so horrendous to read. If you have read this book, you probably know which scenes I am talking about. I really can’t look at hangers the same way every again.
I am the type of reader where I really try to look for the good in every book I read. But sometimes there are just some books that boggle the mind. How can an author want this to be read and why would a publisher even think of publishing it?
So, if you are brave enough, I would love to know what books made you close your eyes and say, “THE VISUALS ARE KILLING ME!”
