I can't believe I used to like those books. :lol: Now everyone but Butler (rezident badass) and the horse annoys me. The series went downhill after the blue book.

Those owl books are high on my list... corny and average storytelling. Gahoolee or something?
(which I think they're making a movie of :roll: more proof that hollywood has been dead since 1988)

Oh, I've got one. Scorpion (?) by Nancy Farmer. Incoherent and silly.

Alex: Sorry :lol:

Haha, the only character I remember was Holly the Elf and Artemis ... Are you talking about Guardians of Ga'Hoole? Rima has like the whole series! Granted, she was like 10 when she read them.

House of the Scorpion? That was also bad. It's kind of fuzzy in my memory, though XD

Well yeah, if you die, and then come back to life, just to kick more ass, you have to be the resident badass lol though I thought Mulch was funny "Pull my toe, not my finger, my toe!" Rofl

Artemis Fowl: The Lost Colony.

Artemis Fowl (the first book) was an amazing read, The Artic Incident was ok, The Eternity Code was passable, The Opal Deception barely kept my attention (I read it simply because I read the others and wanted to keep up to date with the series), The Lost Colony was so bad that I swore that I would never read another book by Eoin Colfer again.

A friend of mine who read The Time Paradox claimed that there were hints that Artemis would hook up with Holly... sorry that is so perverted and it basically clinches the deal. That book is a definite no.

I was just reminded of another utterly horrible book. The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay. It was about some kid in South Africa who grew up to be a boxer and it was about his life story and all. I couldn't really understand most of the historical aspects because I'm not much learned in African history. Plus it was dry and boring and really had no kind of plot.

All those damn horror stories by R.L Stine (Goosebumps, Point Horror etc.)

They're not in the slightest bit scary, and before you say anything, I know they're kids books, but even when I was really young I found them predictable, bland and with all the atmosphere of a plate of boiled cabbage.

I know he's succesful, but he should just stop and do the horror industry a favour.

Any book where you choose your own turn of events.


If you would like to put the robot back together, turn to page 14.
If you would like to water flowers in the greenhouse, turn to page 87.
If you would like to loop a noose around your neck, please read on.

Haha, I have loads of those from when I was a kid, I used to love them. I went through them to see how quickly I could kill the main characters and get a bad ending.
