Which is the most over-hyped book you have read?Kind of agree with some of the above answers. For me, the three that were inordinately disappointing were:
1. Life of Pi: It did not make sense to me, no, I mean, literally did not. I could not understand the play of present and past and future, could not follow or grasp what was happening, when it was happening or why! It was like wading through mud in the darkness- could not see anything. The most confusing book ever, simply because I could not even get the flow of the language.
2. Fifty Shades of Grey: I hold the dubious distinction of having read more than 10,000 Mills and Boon and maybe another few thousands of trashy romances. Believe me, I know my trash ;-) And 50 shades... was so un-erotic, un-passionate, un-arousing. Not to mention the horrible horrible grammar and language and really bad English.
3. Twilight- I only read Book One, and hated it. Again, completely brainless, useless, reason and logic-less! Bella has to qualify as one of the dumbest book heroines of all time.
On the flip side, I adored Atlas Shrugged (which some people here did not like).
