    Default Terrible Book

    book 3.jpgbook 3a.jpg

    I paid full price for this, even though it was on discount because the sales person missed the number pencilled inside the cover

    Catch 22 is an awesome book, Joe Heller was a very interesting bloke judging from the bits we get to hear about him.

    Erica, sadly, is not a very interesting person, and this sort of reads like "Diary of a nobody who knew a Somebody".

    I almost never get rid of books, but this one pissed me off.

    Yes, I will pay to post it to you.

    If nobody wants it, I'll put it in the Phonebox Library at Gawcott.

    Catch 22 was awful, I have never understood its appeal. Id probably pay you to not post this to me.

    There's an offer

    I thought C22 was genuinely hilarious, along with Carrie Fisher's "Postcards from the Edge".

    I mentioned it to a friend a while back , who said "The only book I've struggled to get into more was Ulysses."

    Id agree, but for me Kafka is the worst. OMG, dullsville or what? Whats wrong with a few car chases ffs

    When I see the generosity in this place it brings a tear to my eye.

    If it's so bad, why would you want to inflict it on someone else?

    Just burn it in the garden so nobody will suffer as you have done.

    Misery loves company

    Other people may have other tastes than me and go "woo, best book EVAR!!"

    There are bits about JH that make him sound Quite Interesting and a bit mad. Erica attempted to learn musical instruments, as children do. JH secretly learned the same instruments so he could play alongside her #awww
