Love it or hate it

  • "You either love it or you hate it." You often hear this trite phrase said by afficionados of a certain work, and it is usually crap. The implication is that the work is so profound that one's reaction to it is extreme, one way or the other. And that just ain't the case. I've never known any work, be it music, film, or whatever, that had some that loved it, some that hated it, and a vast majority in between that more or less liked it to varying degrees.
