As I’ve done with The Stupidest Books Ever Written, here’s a selection of careful and considered mini-reviews highlighting the most boring-est books. Presented without comment, for obvious reasons.
Of Mice and Men
I would have to say another book which I found to be rather boring is Of Mice and Men by Steinbeck, I do not care for him overall as an author, he will take like 5 pages to describe the same field
David Copperfield made me want to kill small, furry animals
Wuthering Heights is the most horribly boring book I’ve ever read. Every other book I’ve ever read has had at least some redeeming value about it, but Wuthering Heights was just… ugh… I love reading, but I’d rather get kicked in the balls every two minutes than read that again…
The Rape of The Lock
i don’t really care for alexander pope’s poetry(e.g. the rape of the lock). the rhymings are kinda awkward and the contents are boring. i’d say they are the worst i’ve read so far.
The Catcher in The Rye, Emperor’s New Clothes, All of Shakespeare
Catcher in the Rye – like the Emporer’s New Clothes, I think none of the pro’s are willing to admit it is a terrible read. As for Shakespeare, he is probably an acquired taste. His work becomes intelligent and funny after studying with a Shakespeare-phile. Without that, you really miss the point.
Lord of The Rings
I have to say LOTR even though I pretended to myself I liked it I didn’t, I lied to myself man. There are so little action…parts. Where in the movie theres a lot, like that whole final battle in the end of the first one never happened in the book.
The Art of War
It would be a stretch to call it the worst… but I had an extremely hard time completing “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu… I delved into the book expecting tactical information on warfare that could be translated universally to everyday conflicts… unfortunately, i didn’t get much out of the book…
