What’s the worst book you’ve read recently?
(I figure it’s easier than asking your all-time worst, because, well, it’s recent!)
I've been quite happy with my reading of late , although
'Black Coffee' was a little disappointing.
Over the past year the book which I was most unhappy reading was 'My Heart is my Own' by John Guy. It is a biography of Mary Queen of Scots. This is a lady I have always found fascinating , however, this book did not further that interest.
I'm sure there are many people out there who will extol it's virtues. For me it was hard to read and therefore I didn't complete it. It was not a novel and that is probably where the problem lay. I can't really call it the 'worst' book maybe the most difficult book in the last year.
I'm sure there are many historians who will be appalled at this post!
