Day 22: A book you once loved, but don’t anymore. What changed?

This is difficult for me to answer because I always end up either liking or disliking a book that I read.  In addition I rarely, if not, never re-read a book so I am not sure if I loved a book once upon a time and end up hating it the second time I read it. However, if I had to pick one it would probably be this:

Okay this was more of the case of loving the book when you first start reading it, but as you keep reading, you begin to hate it.  And then by the end you just want to rip the book to shreds.  The book itself is well-written. So, it wasn’t really the author’s writing that bothered me, but more of the character of Amir.  By the end of this book, I resented Amir and the fact that the author was trying to make us, the reader, sympathize and care for him more than anyone else in the story.no animated GIF

(No, the only one I cared about and actually cried for was Hassan) I tried to empathize and see things from Amir’s perspective, but in the end I was just disgusted with his actions (or lack therof).  He is a coward, self-centered, and a thief.  I know that this book is well-loved and highly praised by many, but I am sorry to say that I don’t share similar feelings.
