Most of us know what a wallbanger is. Or what it used to be. A book that was so terribly written, or that had such an unsatisfactory ending, that out of sheer frustration a reader would either literally or figuratively, throw it against the wall.
With the advent of ereaders, and tablet computers, I'm thinking we need a new term. I don't know about you, but I've come across a couple novels I would consider wallbangers recently. In light of the cost of my handy, dandy portable reading device, I practice restraint and don't toss it across the room.
But that doesn't negate the fact that there are still books that raise that emotion. So what do we call them now?
Is there a new phrase I'm not aware of? Or can we think of one?
What do we call the modern day wallbanger? Using a term that's acceptable in a PG13 situation, of course.
Looking for input here. Please feel free to comment. And after that, have yourself a great weekend!
