Booking through Thursday


Today's discussion is ----

Which is worse?

Finding a book you love and then hating everything else you try by that author, or

Reading a completely disappointing book by an author that you love?


This is not easy.I can only comment on one of the questions --- The only book I can remember to fall into this category(ie, an author that you love) is 'Instances of the Number 3' by Salley Vickers. I had read her two previous novels; 'Miss Garnet's Angel' and 'Mr Golightly's Holiday' and thoroughly enjoyed them.

'Instances of the Number 3' was one of those books I couldn't get into to, I perservered for half the book but then recognised defeat.
More book 'talk ' can be found

Can't say this has every happened to me...oh wait, it did for me with Stephen King. Many, many years ago, so much that I have not read him again, and probably never will.

I agree with you Zetor. I think it's very disappointing when you set your expectations high.

Hopefully the next one will be better.

I enjoyed 'Miss Garnet's Angel' and 'Mr Golightly's Holiday' very much, liked 'Instances of the Number 3' less and struggled with 'The Other Side of You'.
