You know from the old Life cereal commercial. That boy was finicky. (But the cereal is delicious).
It turns out I'm the same way with food that I am with books. What I like I like, and I tend to enjoy almost everything. My friend made some stew once and she said it needed salt when she tasted it. I had been shoveling it in and told her it taste fine. She shook her head and told me, "You think everything tastes good."
That's not true. I ate at a pastry shop once and couldn't take more than two bites of the food (I hate wasting food). When I told my friend (the same stew maker) she wasn't surprised. She told me that another friend couldn't finish either and had to take antacids after eating there because the food was so bad.
Anyway, a book has to be really bad for me to rate it low, and usually if it's that bad I won't waste my time finishing it (like that horrible wash my mouth with the whole bottle of Coke pastry).
I realize that people may think I'm trying to appease authors with my reviews. It's not true. It's just that the bad books are like boiled carrots (gagging) and brussel sprouts to me. They don't even make it into my mouth (or head - I'm sure you get the point).
What about you? Do you like most books or are you more of a Mikey?
