It’s banned books week.
This is not about that, not exactly, not really much at all, but just the same, I wanted to ask two questions. Two questions about your taste in books and how they relate to the taste of others.
1.) What book do you love that other people seem to hate?
2.) What book do you hate that other people seem to love?
I don’t just want names and authors listed — I’d love to hear your reasons.
And this isn’t meant to start a war on taste or to suggest in any way that Your Opinions Are Wrong, but rather, quite the opposite — to see how one reader’s Holy Bible is another reader’s cup of Hot Barf. It’s meant to show how our tastes in books wildly deviate, how the norm is rarely the norm, how we all get to love and not love things and that has to be okay.
So. Two questions.
Let’s hear your answers.
