Which is worse?
Finding a book you love and then hating everything else you try by that author, or
Reading a completely disappointing book by an author that you love?
In my opinion, the second choice is much worse. Francine Rivers is one of my favorite authors (I've got too many favorite authors to narrow it down to just one). I've read just about every single book that she's ever written, except one. Her book, The Last Sin Eater, was my all-time least favorite of anything she's ever written. I felt the style was completely different from everything else I'm accustomed to reading by her, and I just did not like it. Nothing else that she's written has disappointed me as much as that one book.....didn't like the movie version, either.
