Is there a book that you wish you could “unread”? One that you disliked so thoroughly you wish you could just forget that you ever read it?
This is really hard to answer. If a book is that bad then it's very unlikely I will get to the end of it anyway, so it's actually quite hard to say that I wish I'd never read it! I could list numerous so-so books, but none of these I would want to unread because if I actually got to the end then I could obviously see some worth in the book even if I didn't love it!
If I had to pick something then it would have to be White Teeth and On Beauty both by Zadie Smith. These were both incessantly boring and books that I did wonder when I'd finished them why I even bothered. So don't even ask me why I read them both. You'd have thought once would be enough! And I recently read Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris which I really didn't like. I don't think I'd say I wish I hadn't read it though because at least now I know not to try anything else! Learnt my lesson from Zadie Smith! Lol.
