Everyone has their own year-end traditions.

At the review-aggregating website Book Marks, one such tradition is finding the year's most scathing book reviews.

The list kicks off with The Mister, by E.L. James (who may not care, as she's the decade's bestselling author), and includes nonfiction from polarizing political figures as well as fiction from generally well-regarded writers, too.

If you’re feeling grouchy this morning, you’ll love these zingers — but those still riding the holiday high may want to pass on bursting their bubbles.

I haven't read the book, but as an English teacher I would agree with the original comment. One would, in fact, say, "David and me" if the phrase came after a preposition because when it does, the pronouns are objects of the preposition, and thus in the objective case. (Example: The dance instructor was rude to David and me). "I" is in the nominative case. You would use David and I when introducing the sentence. Example: David and I took dance lessons. Then, you could say: However, the dance instructor was very rude to David and me. Therefore, we did not continue.

To the person complaining about the grammar, David and I and my brothers and I are both correct. You would never say David and me.

I had to stop reading American Blasphemer, not because of the story line or the initial profane language—people do speak that way after all. But I could not STAND that he kept saying “David and I or “my brothers and I“ when he meant my brothers and me. A person who takes the trouble to write a book should take the trouble to know the difference between the subject of a sentence ( I ) and a subject of a preposition ( me ).

I would love to know where that gorgeous tree is with the little boy reading beneath it!
