Sometimes I wonder what we achieve by embarking on an online book discussion. Sometimes people come into the discussion, with knives drawn, determined to prove that their opinion of the book is the only one possible.
There are reviewers like that too. I wonder if they ever enjoy anything they read.
A couple of other things to think about:
- Each time we re-read a book we get more out of it because we put more into it; a different person is reading it, and therefore it is a different book.--Murial Clark
- even though we all read the same book, we all read a different book.
