Worst Book on the Planet Nominee

If there is an award for the absolute worst book ever, I have a nominee I'd like to....uhmmmm....nominate. That just sounded redundant in my head. But it works.

Back to this horrible book......Outerbridge Reach by Robert Stone
It's one of those books that you keep reading thinking it must "get good" eventually. Alas, nope it never did. In fact, it actually got a lot worse! The writing, editing, plot, title, it all royally sucks! There are even typos in it to add to it's "charm." I wouldn't wish this book on my most favorite enemy. I think it should be required reading for all prisoners....unless the prisoner is actually innocent, then this would be cruel and unusual punishment. Do you get the impression that I absolutely detest this book? Thought so. It was a major waste of time. I should sue Robert Stone for mental anguish. Wonder how much $ I could get from him? Probably only $1...since that's more than likely all he's made off this stinker.

Read this book at your own risk. I've done my duty. You've been warned.
