The worst book ever

I finally finished it! So happy to be rid of the worst book of my life (so far).

Wait! Not fair! Tell more. I just looked on Amazon at that book, and 863 reviewers seemed to have loved it.

Somehow, whatever you have to say sounds more like what I would think of the book than those 863 people.

What made you decide to read it, anyway? Did you take it out of the library? Or, horrors, you didn't actually buy it.

The book was picked by the AA sisterhood bookclub. I wrote here earlier when I couldn't bring myself to finish it my review on goodreads.com: "Poorly written, a self-aggrandizing 350-page magazine article". The inspirational message is present in the book, I can't deny, but it should have been written in the first place without the never-ending self-praising.

The meeting is next Tuesday. I can lend you the book. Would you like to come?

OK, maybe I will come. I'll email you to get details about borrowing the book.
