"If you didn't like it that just means you didn't understand it"-

How many times have I heard someone say that? My english teacher said it about 'Teaching A Stone To Talk' and Orson Scott Card said it about 'Harry Potter'.

Why is it that anyone would assume that taste in writing and comprehension are directly connected? I'll admit that for some, and maybe many people lack of comprehension leads to them not liking a book, but sometimes a person might just not like a book.

Regardless of how good a book is, how thoughtful, and how meaningful, there will always be people who don't like it. Not because they can't understand it. Simply because it is not the style of writing that they enjoy to read.
