11) (Could not find another blog I followed that hasn’t been tagged :P)
Since my last post was about the best selling single volume book, I decided to do some research and find a book that is known for having low ratings. After looking through many books with low reviews, I came across a book called, Antigua: The Land of Fairies Wizards and Heroes, by Larry Ellis and Denise Brown Ellis.
Reading through the reviews on Amazon was pretty entertaining, and when I read some that took actual quotes from the book, I couldn’t believe this book was allowed to be published. Their spelling and grammar is embarrassing, and apparently they state a character takes a train from Britain to England. I’m hoping this book is a joke, and I would not recommend it!
Everybody has their favourite book. Even if this book is not a part of a series, there is always one book people can’t help but read over and over again. I thought it would be interesting to go on Wikipedia, and see what was the best selling single volume book. The top book that sold approximately 200 million copies, published in 1859, was A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens. I haven’t read this novel yet, but I am planning to read it over the summer. This book is followed by The Lord of the Rings, which is technically one book, but it sometimes considered a series.
Let me know if you have read this book, and if it’s worth being one of the most popular books ever!
Dickens, Charles. A Tale of Two Cities. Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice Hall, 1989. Print
