It is in some ways reminiscent of the late, and quite definitely great, Tony Miles' review of "Samurai Chess: Mastering the Martial Art of the Mind".

Wonderful.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Maybe we need an overrated books thread...

Anyway, someone's lent me one of the Twilight books, so I'll add it to the pile, and see if it really is all that bad. 
Have you read it yet Deano?

Actually, no. It's somewhere in all the boxes in me mam's attic. I should probably find it and give it back to Vic, really.

I've tried a couple of Devla Murphy's books & just can't see them thru' to the end:in fact a couple of chapters is enough for me.

I seem to remember enjoying Cameroon With Egbert...

There's something I read that was free on Kindle when I first got one, that seemed like a three-year-old's attempt to write something like a novelisation of Lock, Stock...  It's the only thing I've ever removed from my device because it made me shudder whenever I saw it in the virtual library, so I can't remember its name.  That's the only book that's come close to the aforementioned Battlefield Earth for sheer awfulness.
