Something to think about

Came upon a quote....

"A good novel tells us the truth about it's hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author. "confused

True.. but a good novel also reveals a lot about the author.

hmm..I beg to differ. Either ways, a book is subject to interpretation by the reader! And I think a book - good or bad- tells you the truth about you!

What do you think about this? :D

Clever quote but im not sure..there is no such a thing as a good book or a bad book..its about whether I like it or I dont

i feel the quote is partially true.. a good novel does tell a lot about the hero... but bad ones are probably just bad cos we dint like em, or they werent written well...

i pick up a book, read if i like it, else chuck it.. simple logic :)
but when i pick up books of a particular author, it is reflection of their genre or writing style...
