Here are the results of the latest SF Signal poll.

QUESTION

Have you ever been unable to complete a Hugo or Nebula Award winning book because you disliked it so much?

RESULTS

64% – Yes, what were they thinking?

14% – No, I liked all the award winners I read.

21% – No, I haven’t read any award winners.

(Total votes: 14)

I’m glad to see I wasn’t the only one who was unable to finish an award-winning book. For me, it was Ursula Le Guin’s The Left Hand of Darkness. I just couldn’t get into it at all. Three of the fourteen voters haven’t read any award-winning fiction at all. And I’m curious to know how many award-winners were read by the folks who liked ‘em all.
