the last book in that "enders game" series.
The first book was cool. but each book after that got progessively worse untill i just stopped.
they made enders shadow, which is supposed to be the first book from a different persons perspective, people have been saying thats cool... so i might read it.

I've already mentioned it but The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, oh man its was just written so bad. I couldn't finish it, i dunno if Wolfe always writes like that but i'm not willing to spend the money to find out.

Some other books thats didn;t live up to Expatations, The Thin Red Line, Battlefield Earth, Blade Runner 2: The edge of Human.
Although that last one was kinda my fault. I never read the first one so i had no reference point but thats my fault for being born after it was popular.
peace

Rushdie's "Satanic Verses" disapointed.....I thought it would be more of a challenge......it was good, but not quite what I expected.......

I dislike the later Stephen King novels. The first few were GREAT...then he just started pouring them out like 10 a year...fuck that!

Jack Kerouak's (sp?) On The Road... A few of my friends read it and told me that I had to read it... One even claimed it changed her life.
I couldn't get past the first page. But, to each his own

If you take a contemporary lit class and they assign you a short story book with many different authors....let me know the name so i can order it. I love those things...they come out with new ones each year and I haven't kept up in years...so i've missed a few and am not around a college book store to grab any.....you get the picture.

I like the short story as much as, if not a little better than the novel. It is a bit harder to craft a short fiction story, afterall.....

I disliked Huxleys Doors of Perception - Heaven and Hell. It wasn't what I expected from the book. I thought he was full of crap pretty much.

One flew over the Koo Koo's Nest.. Just didn't catch my attention was to slow.

On the Road was a great book! I wish I could have an adventure like that man.. They are all mad bastards in that book!

Least favorite book ever - drumroll, please...

Pride & Prejudice, by Jane Austen

Had to read it for school - wound up using it as a soporific - 3 minutes of reading, and I was asleep...

Well, becuase of the title "Pride & Prejudice" and the fact you had to read it in highschool, I'm guessing it's about black people.

I would have to say, "Violin" by anne rice. I love her, but that book sucked ass and I couldn't finish it. Also war and peace. big disappointment.

No, not at all - in fact, IIRC, it is a victorian era novel - look up the title on any search engine...
