Which author have you lost respect for, whose works you once enjoyed reading?

I’m all about the style in literature.

When I was an early teen, I read all the Isaac Asimov I could. Sci-fi and Science. And there was a lot.

By my late teens, I discovered stylistics.

And I realised that Asimov could not write.

Oh, he could come up with great ideas; on occasion, even plots. But there was no beauty to his prose. I haven’t forgiven him for that.
