Oddest (BBT)

What’s the oddest book you’ve ever read? Did you like it? Hate it? Did it make you think?

Virtual War by Gloria Skurzynski.

I hated it. It was about a way to avoid the casualties of war by doing it virtually. The premise was pretty interesting, the back cover blurb made me want to read it, but when I was finished, it felt like I'd wasted all my time for such a lousy ending. I made a note to never read anything by her again. I had adored the characters initially, until the ending where it seemed like they all flip-flopped personalities and the storyline went south. A lousy ending and ridiculous characters left me wondering "what on earth?" and reminded me to be sure I'm always careful when crafting my own characters, no matter what I'm writing.
