30 days of books, catchup

Day 04 – Your favorite book or series ever

Favorite ever? Hmm... well, David Brin's Uplift Trilogies were pretty awesome. But the series I've re-read the most is the Harry Potter series.

Day 05 – A book or series you hate

Twilight is too obvious. What a shameful thing for trees to die for. Anyway, other than Twilight, a series I hate? Hmm... *ponders* Oh yes, the Dark Tower series by Steven King. Gods, but that man's writing sucks. I don't know how he became a bestseller. Sure, the movie and series adaptations are pretty good, but his writing style is horrendously boring. I've actually fallen asleep trying to read his books.

Day 06 – Favorite book of your favorite series OR your favorite book of all time

I can't think of a particular book in the Uplift Trilogy I liked best. Besides, it was over a decade ago when I last read it. So I guess I'll go on to the second half. I guess my favorite book of all time is "White Fang" by Jack London, as I've re-read it more times than any other book.

Day 07 – Least favorite plot device employed by way too many books you actually enjoyed otherwise

I can't think of anything offhand.

The problem with Stephen King (for me, anyway) is that he's great at building suspense but *terrible* at writing a good denouement. I don't like his novels but I LOVE his short stories, because they build suspense and end with a bang. "Survivor Type" is one of my favorite stories from the Skeleton Crew collection, but they are all pretty great.
