Worst book I've had to listen to

Well what a buildup at the beginning. Somebody was really trying to sell this, I was quite excited about getting stuck in to it.
I spent the next god knows how many hours wondering why it was even written, the plot is so weak and poorly put together that at the end your scratching your head and wondering what that was all about.
