How about, “What’s the worst ‘best’ book you’ve ever read — the one everyone says is so great, but you can’t figure out why?”
I’m on blog punishment, which means that I had told myself that I couldn’t participate in any memes or fun stuff until I caught up with my reviews, but I just have to answer this question and say Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I managed to get through the whole thing but I thought it was too simply written and didn’t hold any surprises for me. I had been thinking that it might be a suggestion to read with my book club, but once I finished the book I quickly found something else to recommend. It was loved by blogger everywhere and it was shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 2005. I just don’t get it. I definitely thought it was one of Ishiguro’s lesser works, but what do I know?
