Deb at Booking Through Thursday has a good Q and A for us this week:
1. Do you have a favorite author?
In a Weekly Geeks meme several weeks ago, I wrote about my very favorite author, Isabel Allende, so I'll choose another of my very favorites: Louise Erdrich.
2. Have you read everything he or she has written?
Not everything, but close to it. I didn't finish The Antelope Wife; haven't read any of her children's books, and have one of her novels, The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse, on my TBR shelf.
3. Did you LIKE everything?
No. I couldn't get into The Antelope Wife; may give it another try, it's been years. And her most recent novel, The Plague of Doves, was wonderful until the last 50 or so pages, then it fell apart for me.
4. How about a least favorite author?
Hmm. I know there are some I've never read that I know would be least favorite if I did (e.g. Danielle Steele) but that's not really fair. I'll have to say, for now, Anne Tyler.
5. An author you wanted to like, but didn’t?
Joyce Carol Oates.
