Hated the Book. Loved the Kindle

April 25th, 2011

From the “You Can’t Please all of the People all of the Time” department:

The book in question is the Booker Award-winning The Sea, by John Banville.

Most of the 142 customer reviews on Amazon are positive, but those who dislike the book are vocal. Among the negative headlines:

  • Dull as toothpaste
  • This won an award?
  • Exquisite languor
  • eh?
  • Most boring book I have ever tried to read
  • Conned by Booker Prize
