Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips
 
Poorly Written, Slow, Pointless
Gods Behaving Badly

A poorly written, stupid story abouts Gods. The point of the book is that the Gods are losing their power because we no longer believe in them, but the fact is they are not real. Anyway, somewhat entertaining at times but not a good book to read if you have anything else to do with your time.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

What?? Too many characters. The ending comes out of nowhere. A strange way to learn about the effects of war on the Guerney Island.

The Birth of Venus

A very well written novel which descibes the life of a young woman during the late 1400's in Florence, Italy.

 
Informative, Slow, Boring
The Lost City of Z

A great idea but poorly executed. I thought this book would be exciting and interesting but instead it was confusing and boring. However, some of the characters were memorable, Fawcett's wife for example, and it was a very unique book to read.

Uncle Tom's Cabin (Bantam Classics) by Harriet Beecher Stowe

Uncle Tom's Cabin

Beautifully written in old English, this novel conveys a powerful message and tell a wonderful story. Definitely one of my favorite books of all time.

The Reincarnationist by M. J. Rose

The Reincarnationist

A disappointing story with an even more disappointing ending. A great idea but poorly developed.

Mister B. Gone by Clive Barker
 
Boring, Pointless
Mr. B. Gone

This book should "be gone" and never read again by anyone. It was incredibly stupid and the ultimate waste of time. It has no real plot or point. Horrible.

All the Light You Cannot see

Very slow moving novel about the tired subject of the Nazi's at rule. I liked the character development but then some of those characters died! Very sad. I think the author had good ideas but then jammed those ideas all into one book. I especially hated that the jewel was lost forever in the ocean and not seen and appreciated by all for it's beauty.
