It's kind of like a train wreck, isn't it? You can't help but watch!

That had to have been as long as the book itself.

I figured the title would bug some people, but I never would have seen this coming. Wow! So that's where all the drama on that show originates.

Urf. That sounds pretty bad, both show and book.

I feel sorry for you but more for your cat. Someone needs to take your cat away from you and give to a loving person.
WOW. Talk about OTT. And the reviewer was holding a dog - not a cat. HA!

The best response has to be:
"Wow, she's even worse than she is on tv. Disagree with her and you're antisemitic. And then she wishes somone would snach up your imaginary cats. Imaginary cats unite! This is war!! Raowr!!

Oy. That's -- awful. And quite petty.

[quote=""cw gortner""]That happens to me, too. I really couldn't get into Sharon Penman's Sunne in Splendor when I first bought it. I let it sit for over a year, then one day picked it up again. I loved it, couldn't put it down. Just goes to show, you never know.[/quote]

Not historical fiction, I know, but I owned LOTR for about a year and couldn't get past the first chapter. Then I picked it up one Xmas Eve and read it in two days. The only reason it took that long was because it was about 2am when I got to the part where the hobits have left the Shire and the Ringwraiths nearly find them, so I decided to pick up again in the morning because it was scary (the film didn't quite come up to scratch on that bit). And because it was Christmas I had family commitments.
