There are just some things in books that you can't get over. The author invested you so deeply that one issue continues to stick in your craw days, months, sometimes decades later.
Weirdly I can deal with Beth's death but the old German dude is something that makes me irate.
And yet, Little Women is a book that I love. Just not that part.
How about you? What story do you continue to read hoping that an element might change?
