i thought of one!
one of the worst books i've read, from cover to cover is twilight. this was several months to a year before the first movie. my sister and i love vampire books and would trade recommendations often. she told me to read this book called twilight. she said she enjoyed it and that i should read it. well, i read it and i LOATHED it. it had no redeeming value what so ever. i can't imagine any horror fanatic, any romance fan or vampire fan liking this book, because its has niether horror, nor romance nor vampires. NOTHING happens. i read the goddam thing till the end, HOPING to see some action, ANY action. when the final confrontation happens, the point-of-view character GETS KNOCKED OUT and we don't GET TO SEE ANYTHING! ugh. i wanted to write an amazon review just to complain about the book and warn new readers, but then i found out how popular it was. i was too late.
ps- i'm very happy for people who love the book. and i really don't mind the twi-hards, and i welcome all people of of all races, creeds and backgrounds into geek-dom. i just wish it were for better material. hopefully twilight will be the gateway drug that leads on to salem's lot and world war z... and so on.
It gets worse; the big final confrontation at the end of the last book, where all the good and bad vamps, their various allies, and the wolves are all about to fight.... and then everybody goes home.
