20th Century Books That Should Never Have Been Written


You can find all kinds of lists out there claiming to list the best books of the 20th century, or of any century. But what about the worst? Here are our picks for the worst books of the 20th century, books that should never have seen the light of day much less the mass-printer’s press. What do you think?

1) Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler

BERLIN, GERMANY - DECEMBER 15: A 1941 edition of Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf" ("My Struggle") stands at the library of the Deutsches Historisches Museum (German Historical Museum) on December 15, 2015 in Berlin, Germany. The state of Bavaria took possession of the copyright to the book after World War II, though the copyright is due to expire and the book will enter the public domain on January 1, 2016. Germany will continue to heavily restrict publication of the book in Germany though it will have little control over publications abroad. Hitler wrote the book that is both an autobiography and also presents his political vision while he was a prisoner in Germany in he 1920s. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)

Hitler grew up reading populist trash and it totally shows. The worst thing about the worst book of the 20th century is not only that it’s horrifying, but that it’s also boring.
