Booking Through Thursday 04/09/14

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Booking Through Thursday and a different question is posted every week.  

We all had to read lots of different things in school—some of which we liked, some of which we didn’t. Are there any authors that you’ve grown to love because you were introduced to them in your English Lit class? Or—the contrary. Are there any you hate because you were forced to read them? Did you ever go back to try them again?

Taking English Literature at A-level meant I had to read a few books I didn't like.
The books I read, some I got to choose for comparison work- such as Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell- so I already loved them to begin with as I'd read them before.
I had to read Hamlet by William Shakespeare and Hard Times by Charles Dickens- which I enjoyed.  Did they become favourites..? No.  Did I hate them..? No.

But there were some I had to read that I really did not like.  At.  All.  Wouldn't reread and wouldn't read anything else by the authors.
Short Cuts by Raymond Carver and The River Sutra by Gita Mehta.
