Booking Through Thursday – Worse?
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?
I think finding a book I love and then hating everything else by that author is worse than reading a disappointing book by an author I love.
Some examples of this – I read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë and absolutely loved it. Then I read Villette by Charlotte Brontë and had such a hard time understanding the main character. I thought I understood her, but then she would do something and I was left confused. Charlotte has two more novels, but I have not read them yet. I plan to, but am a bit hesitant, since I don’t know if I’ll enjoy them or not…
John Grisham is one of my favorite authors, but I was disappointed by A Painted House, Skipping Christmas, and Bleachers. I have read almost all of his legal fiction, and enjoyed those books, although some on different levels.
I was definitely more disappointed to not like Villette than I was not liking A Painted House.

While looking over the complete list of books John Grisham has written at Wikipedia, I noticed that he has another legal fiction novel due out this year in October. Yay!
