Thumbs down: aulsmith, ValLloyd

Score: 112.85

Explanations:

aulsmith (0): Allegories seldom make my "best" list. Generally they are too preachy.

ValLloyd (0): it could be the best book ever and I still wouldn't finish it. this book isn't just depressing it's at the bottom of an abyss with sleet and sunburns
