Seems that Steinbeck, Tolkien and Hemingway are high on common lists of pet hates. Could it be that Steinbeck and Hemingway at least, had a very masculine centred view of the world and raised this to a self indulgent art form? (Secret - I do have a lump in my throat when reading the end of Mice and Men to senior classes)
Why is Tolkien on so many lists - what is the common thread of boringness?
