  3. I confess I hated Annie Dillard’s book, Pilgrim on Tinker Creek. Hated it. I thought it went on and on and on about too much detail when I first read it about 11 years ago. You’ve given me pause to consider trying it again. Maybe my mind is in a better place than it was back then.

    • The writing is very personal, so it is bound to hit different people in different ways at different times. There have been quite a few supposedly great books I hated, like Life of Pi. It’s interesting to hear other people’s reactions to books I have liked.
