I doubt it. There are a few books out there that's I've really disliked, and right now, I could barely tell you the plot.

I quite like raging against books that I hate - some are definitely more memorable. I wouldn't say that I grow to love them, more that I enjoy picking and magnifying every single flaw.

I disliked Madeline L'Engle's writing style in "A Wrinkle in Time", but a few weeks later, I realised it could have had a more memorable content than some books I've read and liked.

Yes, but memorable =/= enjoyable.

I could read a "shock tactics" type book and it would probably be a lot more memorable than some well-written books about normal subjects that I actually enjoyed reading.

I read John Steinbeck's "the Pearl" and watched the film in English class. It ended sadly, and the main character discarded the pearl which had caused him so much misery. Sad, but memorable.

I remember books that were required to read that I hated, but books that I enjoy its more of a "what was that one book about that one person who did that one thing....?"

Theres tons of books Ive read that Ive enjoyed, but its a lot harder to list them off than it is to list off books I didnt like.

if it told me something i disagree with or dislike, but the information contains an important basic truth or useful thing i didnt realize or know before.

Definitely. Its like knowing the exact words to a song you hate.

Lord of The Flies

I hate that pile with a burning passion. William Golding is a terrible author.

Oh, and Wuthering Heights. dhfagsdjkfhgasdf
