I have never recovered after reading Angela's Ashes when I was 12. We had to do a book report on a diary or autobiography. When I asked if I liked it I wrote "NO, I do not want to read this book ever again." I wouldn't have finished it if everyone else hadn't cleared out the shelf of literally every other book available, leaving me with no choice but to do my report on that. And plus the worst part was near the end. Actually, I don't think I did finish it. I reached the rather detailed description of sex, snapped the book shut and left it behind my sofa until I was made to fish it out. I'm not even sure if it was badly written, but how in the world it was thought suitable for a (at the time very innocent) 12 year old, I'll never know. I've changed a lot since then though, perhaps if I'd read it now I wouldn't hate it so much.
I'm in two minds about Never Let Me Go. There was just something about it that didn't really capture me. I felt sleepy every time I tried to read it. It seemed a bit disjointed, which I suppose is because it's the order the character is remembering it, but things would be hinted at and never picked up again, which I wasn't fond of. Or perhaps I'm remembering it wrong.
