Love this thread, great excuse never to bother attempting Love in the Time of Cholera! Wasn't there a Hollywood film recently based on the book which is also supposed to be terrible? My nomination for worst book ever is Kazuo Ishiguro's The Unconsoled. It is long, unbelievably dull, introverted and dream like. Can't believe it got such good reviews! Has anyone else attempted it, would love to know what you thought? Though strangely amazed at his other book Never Let Me Go, still thinking about it a couple of years after reading it.

Just amazing, never read a book that describes such deeply felt emotions so well
Do you have to over analyse it? Surely its just meant to be taken as it is, a fanciful flight of the imagination that becomes more and more strange til eventually you finish the book/she wakes up.
Have to say, not quite sure why it is so famous, thought it really weird when I was younger and again when re-reading now. Think I heard something about it being like an LSD trip?
