This week's question:
Tell us about a book that you didn't like and why we shouldn't read it (as nicely and respectfully as possible).
Well, I have to say that there aren't a whole lot of books I don't like but I think this is partly due to the fact that I choose my books very carefully, especially if I am buying them because I don't like to spend money on something I'm not sure I will like. However, we all have chosen books we thought would be wonderful and they end up sucking for one reason or another. I am no exception.
Being a huge Star Wars fan, I thought it would be cool to read a biography on Carrie Fisher called Wishful Drinking. She had written successful books in the past and the synopsis promised the book to be both hilarious and sobering but I was just downright depressed by it. I never found the funny. I ended up just feeling really bad for her and her family. In addition, my image of Princess Leia was slightly marred. I decided after this experience that I should stay away from bios of celebrities I love if I want to keep my glorified image of them intact.
