Gfest Game - Bitching A Classic - Round 2

Bitching A Classic is a fun little game gfesters love to play, because it celebrates to extreme negativity of many comic book fans. We give you little snippets from ridiculously negative customer reviews on Amazon of highly regarded classics. You see if you can guess the book.
Today's Clues:
  • It was so long and wordy I gave up after the 5th chapter. I had a hard time finding it entertaining or following the plot.
  • I consider almost everything about the story an abomination. Most of the blood-splattering, scenery-chewing, plotless nihilism that defined superhero comics from the late 80's to the late 90's can ultimately be traced back to this story.
  • A lame villain and pointless revisionism make this story not worthwhile.
  • Without a doubt this is the biggest piece of crap I have ever read. I couldn't get past the 2nd or 3rd chapter. Long, overly involved, overly complex, and just plain old stupid.
  • Read only if looking for simultaneous cures for insomnia and sanity. This was nothing more than a waste of my time and brain-space.  
  • A nearly 400-page string of countless deaths. My first reaction to it, in fact, was horror... it's much more of a horror story than a "fun" story.

  1. That took me by surprise. I would have guessed Watchmen based on the comments.
