Best Bad Book
“What’s the best ‘worst’ book you’ve ever read — the one you like despite some negative reviews or features?”
When I was younger, it would have to have been Erich Segal's Love Story. It never failed to reduce me to tears, and since I went through a stage when I needed to be reduced to tears frequently, I read it a lot. The copy we had was technically my sister's, so I no longer have it on hand; probably a good thing.
More recently, I've enjoyed Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian, the Harry Potter series, Wally Lamb, and if I'd've paid attention to the customer reviews at Amazon, I'd have taken a pass on Julia Glass's I See You Everywhere earlier this month.
