Reading Meme – Day Seven

Day Seven – A writer you don’t like

I can’t think of a writer I don’t like. There are writers who annoy me (sometimes reading blogs is bad, alas), but I can’t think one I don’t like. I’m drawing a blank on this. I mean, I might hate Look Homeward, Angel, but I know bupkiss about Thomas Wolfe, so how I can I not like him?

About Jessica

Dork extraordinaire, that's me! An unhealthy knowledge of Star Trek, a love of books, a fondness for purring cats.

    I’ll take it to mean a writer whose work you categorically don’t like.

    And I’ll go with J.K. Rowling. I read the first six (6!) Harry Potter books, and they just kept getting worse and worse until I refused to read the seventh.

    Ashamed I didn’t stop sooner.

    Alan Moore. The man’s work is just depressing.

    Kevin J Anderson. he took my beloved Dune universe and turned it into cheap action pulp. I’m sure he’s a stand up guy, but I am a rabid Dune-head.

      I’m actively avoiding the new Dune books. I’ve regarded them with great suspicion since the first one cropped up on shelves, and I refuse to dilute the series I enjoyed so much with books that don’t look like they contribute the universe at all.

      • Redhead says:

        I read the first new one, and part of the second. they’re just so NOT Dune! I don’t even know how many new ones are floating around anymore, and I too am actively avoiding them after one and half sips of the kool aid.
