Yeah, I can't *stand* the "you're not deep enough to appreciate the poignant meaning/brilliance" argument. So the theme of the book is escapism is fun? That's cool. Maybe you were smart enough to "get" it, but that just wasn't a theme that resonated with you very deeply. I mean, people read all kinds of books. I've heard people say that that book was a blast, rolicking fun, etc., but nobody told me that they flung down the book and wept at any point. It's okay to like or not like a book or a movie, but who the hell is going to be convinced they love a book they've already read by some guy yelling at them that they are stupid?
