It's happened to all of us.
A friend says, 'Hey, have you read this?' and hands you a book. No, you haven't read it.
Or maybe you read some review in the paper and though, 'ooh, that sounds good'
So you get the book, happily take it home and start reading....
And you hate it. For whatever reason, the book just does not click with you. It could be the story, the characters, the plot, whatever. But you just can't read it.
Maybe you trudge through; maybe you close it and walk away.
As my grandmother always said, you can't like everything.
What book (or books) do you hate? Was it one that everyone else liked? A classic that you were forced to read?
A couple from me are Shipping News by Annie Proulx and Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad.
