Ask the Readers – Do You Hate a Book?

Last month, I asked for you to ask some questions that we can ask the readers. Here is the third question, although a little late. Again, it’s from Solveig. First, I’ll answer the question, then it’s your turn.

Is there a book you hate? Why?

I don’t think I’ve ever hated a book. I’ve been lucky to never have read one that I couldn’t finish. There are some I felt somewhat indifferent to, but nothing I hated. So, I personally can’t answer this question.

How about you?

Maybe some readers have an answer to this question. What’s a book you hated and why? I’m interested in seeing the answers, if there are any hated books. I’m sure there are some, but I think people usually avoid reading books that don’t seem interesting. So, it’s your turn! Leave your answer in the comments below.


What’s Difficult About Worldbuilding?

As you may know, I’ve created my own world, Ariadne, for my novels in progress. It’s been a very long process to create it, and has involved many different aspects of science and social science. It’s actually quite fun to do it. However, it’s not all easy. I think the more difficult parts are keeping track of some of the complex things, such as history, country relationships, and evolving cultures and societies.

What do you think would be difficult for you? I’m going to be writing a lot of posts about worldbuilding in the future, and I’d like to know what you feel you would need most help in figuring out. Let me know in the comments below what you think is the most difficult aspect of worldbuilding for fantasy and science fiction.
