I was curious about Her Fearful Symmetry before I picked it up (my book group did it last month), but I didn't really expect anything from it although I really enjoyed The Time Traveller's Wife--probably because I didn't expect to like TTW and thought it was just a fluke I liked it. While Her Fearful Symmetry seemed sort of easy and undemanding to read, as long as you suspended disbelief about things supernatural, but when I had finished it, I felt I hadn't liked it, and wondered why she had written such a long-winded tourism ad for the Highgate cemetery.

I was having trouble thinking about this one, I've had some I've not liked much, but being disappointed implies having greater expectations, at least to me it does, and so I'm going to say Doors Open by Ian Rankin. I love his Rebus mysteries and bought this one without reading anything because it was Rankin, but this one was like a throw away just to get something else out there and I all but threw it out the door!
