What are your favorite and most hated books?
- The Metamorphosis, by Franz Kafka (fiction–explain a guy turning into a giant bug overnight)
- Sugar Isn’t Everything, by Willo Davis Roberts (fiction, kind of a young person’s guide to diabetes)
- Emergence: Labeled Autistic, by Temple Grandin (non-fiction, about the author’s life as an autistic)
Most hated book: “Cujo.” Yuck. It took me a week to finish the book, whereas with “The Dead Zone,” which is longer by about 100 pages, it took me 3 or 4 days! “Cujo” was boring, filled with dumb sub-plots, and nothing accelerated until the last 50 pages… in which nothing happens that you haven’t heard about before. Never read “Cujo” if you love cats, you’ll love dogs even more.
