[Game/discussion]: Love and hate

Recommended Posts

I saw this somewhere else and thought that it would be fun to try it here. You write the titles of two books - one that you like and one that you dislike. The rest of us can then guess which one you like or don't like. It might lead to a discussion about those books as well. You don't need to wait for someone else to guess before you write a post of your own. Of course there will be points for everyone playing.

 

I'll start:

 

American Gods - Neil Gaiman

 

Stardust - Neil Gaiman

Like American Gods, hate Stardust?

 

The 5th Season - N. K. Jemisin 

 

And to keep the theme of Neil Gaiman going:

The Ocean at the End of the Lane - Neil Gaiman

Correct. It's more about like/not like because I have no strong feelings for them but I couldn't understand all of the positive reviews for Stardust. 

 

Hm... I haven't read any of them so I will just guess that you like The Ocean at the End of the Lane and hate The 5th Season.

I haven't read Stardust, but I've read American Gods and I liked it.

 

You are also correct, I couldn't get into the book.

What kind of book is The Ocean at the End of the Lane?

Like Dune, hate Ender's Game?

 

And The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a weird book that's all flashback. A guy is going back to his childhood home, and stops by the house of one of his friends where he remembers the things that happened there, but immediately forget them again when he leaves.

Hm... sounds kind of weird but also interesting. 

 

Actually, the other way around. I don’t love Ender’s game but I liked most of the story. 

 

I could not get into Dune. I have tried twice but I just can’t. Maybe I will watch the new movie instead.

That's fair. Most people I've talked to online dont like Ender's Game because of OSC's views outside of the book.
