The Worst Book I’ve Ever Read

DearΒ  reader – you’ve come to know that I like to talk about books I really enjoy. In fact, if I don’t like a book, I privately tell the author that it wasn’t for me and give him/her my review but don’t publish it. I want my blog to be about celebrating really awesome books to read.

There now has come a time when I have read a book so awful that I feel that I need to warn others not to buy it.

So why didn’t I like this book?

First off there is NO plot. I couldn’t figure out what was going on. From the title I thought it was going to be a story about being lost in the wilderness – kind of a My Side of the Mountain book, but as I started reading I was totally confused.

On the first page we meet the main character – Ariens, he’s a lumberjack. The reader is told he is dangerous and could potentially cause death. So now I am figuring it’s not a My Side of the Mountain book but more of a Goosebumps eerie – creepy tale.

Well as I read on, I learn practically nothing new about Ariens other than he needs to be stabilized -okay I get it, he’s a crazy dangerous lumberjack. Through the rest of the story, he really doesn’t do ANYTHING. I don’t even think he ever leaves his garage.

I suppose it should get points for being multilingual; it comes in French and Spanish.

I seriously had to choke down the rest of the book.

So as a service to you, kind reader; I warn you:

  5. I LOVE your sense of humor. At first I was shocked; your book reviews are so right-on, but I never expected you to diss a book, only not put it on your list of books to recommend. I must admit, I was relieved when I got to the end…and the joke. πŸ™‚ You got me good.


  6. Brilliant, Erik. You almost had me. Happy April Fool’s Day.


  7. Happy April Fool’s Day to you.

  11. Brilliant! And the cover was just far enough down the page you couldn’t see it till you’d already been taken in. Perfect πŸ™‚


  12. I really think you owe Ariens an apology for not emailing them your review first and allowing them to learn from their experience to write a better book!

  13. You got me. The cover was too far down to catch on soon enough to . . . well, to dish the blog!–nah, could never do that. Nice joke. You got me. Much better than my accidentally telling a publisher their book would be reviewed in 2018, in an email marked April 1, 2017 (actually did this, by accident).
