Thomas Hardy? "Unbearable."

Ernest Hemingway? "Too busy being an American."

Charles Dickens? "Repetitive."

Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey? "[A book about] this terrible vapid woman and her so-called love life."

    And glad to have been of some use with the pole-dancing post. Truly honoured there.
