fifty shades of gray
Dragon Tears by Dean Koontz.
I love his books, and others told me it was a very good book, but I simply couldn't get past the boring beginning. I'm a diehard...if I start a book, I'll finish it...just couldn't do it with that one, though.
Can't think of one off hand. I am currently reading War and Peace for the second time.
"The Other Woman" by Daniel Silva. I have read other books of his which I enjoyed. This is a spy novel 509 pages long, 500 of which were pure drek. I kept thinking the book had to improve, but it never did.
The Unknown Condition: Akari's Story
Hustler and Playboy...I quit reading their articles years ago.
