You guys, you have to see this...this thing. This character description from an actual published book. It's...

You guys.

I can't even describe this, I'm just going to link to the scan on [ profile] vandonovan's LJ since he generously said we could spread the "love" of this around.

The most horrifyingly hysterical purple prose ever.

I'VE SEEN THAT BOOK! Somebody signed it out and brought it to a party so he could read aloud from it and entertain us all! Man, it had us rolling in the aisles.

I hurt. It's so bad I almost want to fill two pages of nothing but simile and metaphor describing how much those two pages of writing suck.

I am laughing in my mind, for I am at school. Also crying. For the pain of that is only eclipsed by it's sheer awesome badness. I so totally want to read more now. Just to marvel at the fact that it is a real print book.

That is the worst.. I mean absolutely the worst. Just can't stop laughing.
I mean how many fucking metaphores do you need to describe her fucking body for Christ's sake? Who published that crap?

BTW I crossposted to another forum I read (My guild's world of warcraft forum) and one of my guildmates posted this:

"That description was a train flying off the tracks on a mountain cliff. A meteor burning through the atmosphere to strike the happiest couple alive. It was clover, and a sunset to the east. It was a shoe that looked and felt good in the store but cut off circulation and caused gangrene. It was as satisfying as a visit to tubgirl. It was like a dog in the rain that ate cheese. It was as if the editor had just said "F**k This!" three chapters earlier."
