I've always thought Diary of a Nobody should have been the greatest Russian novel ever written. Instead it's a mildly amusing novel that grew out of Punch magazine.

You?

Diary of a Madman + Netochka Nezvanova innit.  That's what your brain has done.

The Fault In Our Stars is a really good name for an okay teenagers' book.

THIS, which I bought thinking it was going to be an in-depth essay into the public morals versus private decadence of the Nazis. In fact it's just some bloke's porn stash that the author found hidden behind some furniture.

Rob Grant's Red Dwarf novel, Backwards, isn't printed entirely backwards. Now that's what I call quite wasteful.

It does, however, recycle bits from the TV series to little effect so in that respect it is pretty backward.
