Any books or authors you hate? Why? Is it the writing? The stories? The author’s personality? And—would you read their work anyway?
I don’t think that I actively hate any particular authors, or books, as if I didn’t like them then I wouldn’t read them in the first place.There are authors whose work I dislike, but it would be a bit unfair of me to say that I hate them when I just don’t like their writing, or the stories that they write, which are not really the same things.
I don’t particularily like the work of Dan Brown, but he sells millions of books so there must be some people who like his books, unless they are purchased to fill a landfill site. I don’t really get along with the work of Terry Pratchett either so I tend not to pick up books by those authors as I just know that I am not going to like them.
Therefore I will rarely read a book by an author that I don’t like.
