Well, yeah, but sometimes I've re-read a book I hated or watched a movie I didn't like and realize that it was not so bad.
But usually the opposite ensues. It still STAYS BAD. Or worse, a book I like (Prayer for Owen Meany, She's Come Undone) turns into a terrible book on a rereading.

I know, but being insanely optimistic I keep hoping I was missing something and that it would magically turn good and engaging. Because if a book is bad (Gate to Women's Country comes to mind) I often wonder, was it me? Is the problem my perspective of this book? Am I somehow biased? Plus it's not a...

I was trying to read EiE at the supermarket today. Why are so many people in that book so... self satisfied and swarmy in their dialog? It drives me crazy. Everyone sounds so sure of their pure and total smartness. Plus the dialog was painfully unrealistic. Way more like preaching than talking. Urg....

That was something that bothered me after reading that book for the severaleth times. It's just that just because those folks were Chinese, doesn't mean they'd act like ancient China to prove their Chinese-ness anymore than Japanese folks would eat nothing but raw fish to prove their Japanese-ness. ...

Yeah. EIE bothered me deeply. It just wasn't as good as Ender's Game. Worse, OSC wants to change the original story to match EiE, which makes me think, do not do it! The original was just find. Do not pull a George Lucas!

Yeah, especially since this is not Japan.

Why can't women just raise up the seat if they don't want to sit? Then I don't have to deal with someone else's urine that they should have wiped up themselves!

This is why I will often bring a hand sanitizer to the bathroom with me to clean off the seats.

Gum popping.
Ban it. I can't stand it. I cannot leave the house without someone making that disgusting noise.
