I read Jane Eyre in high school and absolutely hated it. I proceeded to write a scatching review of it for my English class, not knowing that it was my English teacher's absolute, most favorite book in the entire world.
She gave me a big, fat "F" on my paper. True, I didn't do a very good job of backing up my opinion with anything from the text (I was still just a baby freshman); I just wrote that I didn't like the story and that I thought it was dumb and a bunch of senseless garbage. She wrote me a note saying that my paper showed how ignorant and close-minded I was as a reader and that I needed to keep my opinions to myself unless I could back them up with relevant information.
I guess we'll see how I like it this time through...
Thanks for sticking with us while we figured out what's going on around here!
