A list of books I would not recommend to anyone!
and The Evil Inside the Mind of a Child Killer, both of which are totally boring.
This book had a few twists but most were fairly obvious. Unfortunately, the author turned what could have been a really good storyline into a fairly boring book. I had to struggle to get through it and I’ve already forgotten most of the salient points. Not worth my time.
I dislike the writing style of this book, the way the author keeps whining about his life instead of talking about homelessness. Also, the book was boring.
I found the plot of this book predictable and the character’s felt fake. The format, which kept switching from script, to character, to real life, was extremely annoying and distracted from the story. Additionally, it wasn’t really very thrilling or scary. I wouldn’t bother reading this again.
I bought this book because I tend to like worthless trivia and find random facts interesting. I was disappointed. There are some interesting lists at the beginning, and a couple at the end, but the majority of the book is just plain boring. So boring, in fact, it took me over a year to read it! I am not inspired to check out the website. If you are a pub quiz aficionado, this is the book for you. If you read trivia for interest, give this one a miss.
This is an incredibly boring book. I laboured all the way to part three in the hopes it would improve, but I was sorely disappointed. The language is too dense and the style is condescending – I feel as though I’m being talked down to. The blurb states that this book is supposed to be a metaphor for the German occupation of France – I simply cannot see it. anyhow, this is not a book I would recommend.
Don’t buy this book. If you really want to read it, borrow it from the library. This book is boring with a capital B. It is written like a thesis, with lots of long sentences and industry jargon. I struggled to reach page 33. Normally I don’t put a book down before page 50 as I want to give it a fair go, but in this case I have made an exception. The subject matter is an interesting one and The Captured Womb would probably be of interest to med students or professors, but the rest of us should give it a miss.
This book is way too hard to read. It is reputed to be one of the most important books ever written, but I simply could not get through it. The language is extremely convoluted and reads as though it has been written for the chardonnay set. It would be difficult for the average layperson to read. I have been reading this book for months and I am not even half-way through. I think now is the time to give up!
The authors of this book should, perhaps, stick with architecture and chemistry and leave writing books to others. The overall concept behind Cradle to Cradle is an interesting one, which is what prompted me to pick up this book in the first place. Unfortunately, I found this book incredibly boring, though I managed to struggle through to page 61 before giving up. Life is too short to read boring books! To add insult to injury, the authors have decided to prove their point by publishing their book on some kind of synthetic paper, making a relatively small book incredibly heavy to carry around. Cradle to Cradle will definitely not be making my recommendations list!
