Booking Through Thursday

1. Do you have a favorite author?
Yes, Piers Anthony.

2. Have you read everything he or she has written?
Goodness no!  He is immensely prolific.

3. Did you LIKE everything?
I think so.  I did stop reading one of his series (Apprentice Adept) because it got too many generations in.  I made it through 3, and that was about enough.  Piers also writes a lot of stuff that makes me distinctly uncomfortable, but I think it’s good for me to read.

4. How about a least favorite author?
Maybe J. D. Salinger?  I really don’t like Catcher in the Rye.  Or William Faulkner.

5. An author you wanted to like, but didn’t?
The Terrys: Terry Brooks and Terry Pratchett.  Terry Brooks bored me, and Terry Pratchett’s humor is too self-aware for my tastes.
