Just in case you’re wondering how I manage to say nice things almost always about the books I read, I just wanted to clarify that I don’t write reviews about books I hated. Even so, here’s a short list:
The Tin Drum by Gunter Grass - too dense.
The English Teacher by RK Narayan - terribly slow and boring
Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein - just generally shit. bad writing.
The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemmingway - style out of date and no fun anymore.
