Okay, my acting skills (yes, that is supposed to be me looking perplexed) suck, however, my question is a valid one. Anyone else ever finish a book and wonder, based on fellow readers’ reviews, if you’ve been reading the same one as everyone else?
There’s this series I love. I’m not going to get into names because that’s beside the point. All you need to know is there is a fair number of books in the series and up until now, I’ve told everyone I meet who likes this type of book that this series is a must-read. I still believe that.
The latest one just came out. And I was sooo excited to read it. By the end, I had a relentless headache and a huge WTF look on my face. The writing was good, I’m still invested but overall – meh.
Then I started reading other people’s reviews. Raves everywhere – especially about the taut action and character growth. And I started wondering how we had such vastly different experiences of the book. Had I not read it properly? Did they pick up on something I didn’t? Have I officially turned into Statler and Waldorf? (Okay, yes, the last part may be true. But still.)
So I’m throwing it back to you darlings. This ever happen to any of you? Where you feel like you’re the only one that didn’t seem to love a book?
