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?" 
and quit.

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.
