Books/authors you feel obligated to like, but don't?
#12
I mostly love Chesterton, but there are certain subjects that he doesn't handle well - he's too verbose and ponders too much instead of just reporting the facts.  Also his paper on the Shakespeare authorship question is appalling.

Mine is Tolkien.  God knows I tried with the Lord of the Ring but after a cycle of 5 pages of walking along the path, 5 pages of eating drinking and singing, 5 more pages of walking, 5 more pages of eating drinking and singing, I'd had enough.  Anyone else in the world not like him???
