This week's Question:
Q: Have you ever read a book that you thought you would hate — ? Did you end up hating it? Did you end up loving it? Or would you never do that?
I don't know if I ever read a book I thought I would hate. Maybe a long time ago while I was in school. I know there were some books I had to read that always stuck with me, such as Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Odyssey, and many others. With those I don't know if I remember them so well because we spent so much time breaking them down and writing papers on them that they became permanently etched in my brain or if I remember them because they were good. The Odyssey I thought I would hate, but still didn't like it much even after I finished it. Even the books I loved, such as To Kill a Mockingbird, by time the unit was done I hated the book.
In my adult life, I kind of look at it as nobody is forcing me to read anything, so I would never pick up a book I thought I would hate.
