Book Blogger Hop: Books vs. Beliefs

hop



Q:
Would you stop reading a book if an element of the plot strongly clashed with your personal beliefs, or would you continue reading until you finished the book? (submitted by Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books)

A: That’s a really interesting question. My beliefs can be summed up pretty simply: “be a good person.” So really, finding a book that clashes with my beliefs is going to be rather difficult unless we are talking about something like Mein Kampf. When I give up a book it’s usually because I don’t like the writing style or the story isn’t keeping me interested. Even if I don’t agree with certain scenes or themes in a book, I will still keep reading because I might learn why someone would do those things or think that way.

  1. I have a few strong beliefs, but I don’t mind reading books that go against them as long as those books explore why the characters or the book itself presents such beliefs. I like to know why people do things so as long as there’s an explanation or possible exploration, I’ll read it.
