Lists commending books abound. Annually, we get a rank of the best books every year from different sources, there are countless lists for the 1,000 or 1,001 novels to be read, and the list of literary prizes and awards gets longer as you read this. However, even books in those ultimate 1000-long lists do not always enjoy good reviews. In fact, Bill Henderson has compiled Rotten Reviews Redux, a book containing very unfavorable reviews given to titles you might not expect to be harshly criticized. In a very ironic turn of events, it turns out Bill Henderson's book has itself received unfavorable criticism; you can read some of them in Goodreads.

We have compiled a list of books receiving very unfavorable reviews that we want to share with you.
