Dreck – WWW Wednesday

WWW_Wednesdays4To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions:

  • • What are you currently reading?
  • • What did you recently finish reading?
  • • What do you think you’ll read next?

Today I deviate from the standard meme.

What am I currently reading – easy, yesterdays Tuesday Teaser.

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro.

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day comes a devastating new novel of innocence, knowledge, and loss.

What did I finish reading? – DRECK. Terrible dreckishy dreckful  dreck.

What did I finish reading? – DRECK. Terrible dreckishy dreck. A book (actually more than one piece of dreck, but the last one I read was dreckishy dreck) I offered to review.

A book that has a poor plot, clichéd villains, POV flip flops. No descriptions or descriptions that contradict.

The male dialogue usually ends with , ‘he sneered.

The young female police officer is always in trouble, has a temper and her boss doesn’t like her.  So he assigns a 20 year veteran cop to keep  her out of trouble while they investigate a vampire like killer.

No one believes in vampires. But it just happens that her partner is the vampire kingpin.  That’s right – Kingpin.

She kills him (the kingpin) and is covered with blood that spits. Sorry, that is what is written, spitting blood. Immediately there is a knock at the door. It is her boss, the Lieutenant.

” “I see we have a problem” he sneered.

“How did you know?”

“A neighbor called about the commotion. Don’t worry about a thing. I’ll get this taken care of this for you.” ”

Oh the humanity!

I push myself out of a sense of duty to read on. It doesn’t get better.

I don’t want to write an unkind review. I don’t want to hurt feelings.

And I will not say something that isn’t true or I don’t believe.  So what is the answer?

Do I let the author know I have to give a bad review? Or do I just not review the book?

I am leaning the don’t review way out.

Input and advice would be appreciated.

Now, I that I am all worked up about the level of dreck my brain has endured, I need to relax.
