I think 'One Night@ The Call Centre' was so talked about and hyped, but in my opinion, it was crappy. I expected so much more. The narration was boring, and the end was disappointing too Ouch

The most overrated book was Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses. Rusdie is the most overrated writer by far, in my opinion!

I remember a few weeks ago my English teacher suggested Escape from Memory [forgot who wrote it]. It was probably the stupidest book EVER! It sounded interesting when I first read the summary, but it was a complete waste of time.
