'Hannibal' is the worst book I've ever had to read, more boring than a long flight in fact, but Harris's description of the Palazzo Vecchio as 'intensely medieval in appearance' is worthy of Garth Marenghi.

Worst copy-edited book I've come across yet is Lowry's _Under the Volcano_, though I've got several that run a close second to it. I've put the editing details here http://www.bookerrata.com/books/undervolcano.html ... it's just a sad thing to do to such a well-written story.
