2. I haven't read it, but I have a different tale of literary weirdness

In college I was assigned Virginia Wolff's To The Lighthouse no less than three times. I tried, man! I really tried to get into it. But I ended up hating Wolff. Then I was assigned The Waves. I begrudgingly started reading it. Then I found I couldn't put it down.

I always thought it was strange how I could detest one book and adore another by the same author.
