The most boring book I ever read

The most boring book I ever read

I’m a huge fan of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I loved One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. That being said, I must confess that The Autumn of the Patriarch is the most boring book I’ve ever read.

The book tells the story a South American dictator and his slow decay. The books starts off with long chapters, one page sentences, almost no paragraphs, and then towards the end the chapters and sentences become longer and longer until the reader is completely exhausted. I kept hoping the dictator would die soon, but he didn’t. His decay seems to go on forever and ever until it becomes unbearable. Then he finally dies.

I guess that’s what Garcia Marquez intended, to take the insupportableness and longevity of dictatorships into the book. But, it’s still a boring book in my opinion.

Bookopoly Board Game

bookopoly board game

The Bookopoly Board Game is a bookish version of Monopoly for bookworms.  A great board game for book clubs or for any true book lover.

So, the Internet is really full of surprises! I was amazed when I discovered this Bookopoly! I never thought there was such a thing as a Bookopoly.

Like Monopoly, this is a traditional property trading game where players buy, sell and trade their way to fun with family and friends. Roll the dice and advance to Read. Collect Bookstores and trade them in for Libraries. And on the back of each property deed you’ll find interesting facts about the books and the authors.

The game is for 8 years and above, it includes sculpted tokens and is for 2 to 6 players.

The Bookopoly Board Game is available from Amazon.

For more bookish games, check my literary games page, where you can find a special Trivial Pursuit for book lovers or the Book Lover's Memory Game.
