Hmm, I read one at the insistence of a friend of mine, then read another
and yet another because I thought it was probably an acquired taste.
Then I said "I don't LIKE this? Why am I forcing myself to read it?"
I think the point is that I don't like the kind of man Miles is, neither
in literature nor in real life. I can imagine why thousands of women
fall for him, but I'm just not one of them.
