So yes the premise of this thread is rather simple. Essentially what books that you can think of seemed great in premise but failed so utterly in execution that you felt like vomiting with rage? One title that jumps out at me is Descent at first it seemed like a cool idea. I mean you have a immense unknown underworld filled with a deadly, cruel and truly bizarre sentient species. Even better it looks at first like it might turn out to be a truly spectacular horror war thriller. And then the writer managed to fuck it up with A) Leagues and leagues of stupidity. B) Skipping to the uninteresting points. C) Making it all about catholicism. D) Ruining the bloody under worlders.
