Ooooohhhh, get you!

Well, Jim, because I have an open mind and like to learn. This is an author with a reputation. Some people like the stuff. In fact a lot of people do. So I'll have a look at it, and I may be unpleasantly surprised, but that's all in a day's read. And then I ask my friends whether I just happen to have picked a bad example and should try a different one.

FYI, the last time I had such a negative reaction to an author, it was Elizabeth George.
