Day 11 - A book you hated

Dead Until Dark

I don't really hate any books. I feel that I can usually come back to them later and feel better about them at different points in my life. The following also falls under that category. This was really unfortunate for me because I love the show True Blood and I was so eager to read the books. I got through this one and got as far as halfway through the second one, but then gave up. I just could not stand them. It wasn't the story because I liked that, but the writing. I felt like I was reading out of a diary of someone who was really not all that smart, for lack of a better term. The wording just drove me nuts. And I tried really hard because I know tons of people that love the books and figured I'd get through the first and maybe it would get better, but I just couldn't do it. This is very strange too because usually I like the books better than a movie or TV series, but this is just the opposite. I actually have tried to re-read them lately, but it's still difficult. Something tells me that if these books had been written in third person, I may have liked them better, but Sookie's first person makes me crazy.
