I'm so sick and tired of hearing people mouth off about books and slamming them while not reading them themselves, getting their assistants to read them for them or just reading the naughty bits.
Some of the obvious ones are the Harry Potter books.
I remember the Opus Dei ranting about how they were portrayed as "evil" in "The Da Vinci Code" and having read the book myself I'm thinking... um, 1) work of FICTION, 2) it was just two of the people who were a part of the group in the book that were doing the sinful things. I'm guessing Opus Dei is kinda like The Sith, but I guess nowadays the saying "One bad apple doesn't spoil the bunch" and the whole baby and the bath water deal.
I'm watching the special about the coming together of Motley Crue for the reunion tour last year. One of them was talking about how Tommy was trashing Vince in his book, "Tommyland". I read the book and Tommy will say the Vince is a wonderful frontman but it's some of his personal issues that Tommy has issues with.
I just wish people would read what they want to bash before hand.
