Why would I think that?  I'm the one who didn't think _Dark Lord_ lived up
to *my* expectations.   :)

Actually I think it's interesting, myself, when I read a book that I know is
good and that I just don't care for.  It's interesting to ferret out the
reasons, because I generally learn more about reading that way.

On the other hand, you might have porridge for brains because you can't take
Thomas Hardy.... (hee hee)
