The Ruins by Scott Smith

Where do I begin? This was the biggest waste of time. It keeps moving, but I figured it out about 150 pages in and was bored the rest of the book. Very predictable. I wouldn't waste my time if I were, just think Little Shop of Horrors and you'll get the idea.

This was why I quit listening to the BOCD. It was awful and I didn't care about the characters, what happened or didn't happen.

I didn't hate it. I finished the book which is far more than I can say about most books I start. LOL. That said, I did have trouble with the characters, didn't ever really care about any of them, didn't get choked up at all when they ALL died. And I thought the plot could have gotten so much better, simply by going into those damn ruins!!! The book was called "The Ruins" after all... Was it now? LOL =)
