How did you react to assigned reading when you were in school/university/college/etc? How do you think on these books now? What book were you 'forced' to read when you where in school that you've since reread and loved?
I was always an avid reader and never reacted badly to assigned reading. That is not to say that I loved everything assigned but that I approached my assignments with an open mind. I was a science major, so I didn't take many English classes as an undergraduate.
Three authors I disliked in my youth and still dislike: Henry James, Thomas Hardy, and E. M. Forester.
Two authors I always liked but for whom my appreciation has grown as I have matured: Franz Kafka and Victor Hugo.
