Yes, I have this reaction with C. J. Cherryh. I tried reading her _Heavy
Time_ a few years back and it was just awful, no interest at all... Then I
started it again last year and I read it and its sequel in a really short
time and continued then with her _Foreigner_ series. Still, I really dislike
her Russian fantasy books (Rusalka etc.) which are very depressing and IMHO
have no likeable characters at all.

I liked Moon's _Waking the Moon_ and Hobb's "Assassin" trilogy in general,
but really disliked the thir book in the series since it was a kind of
two-steps-forward-one-step-backward -kind of book. I haven't yet read her
Farseer -books which some friends have recommended.
