The Suck Fairy

There's been an interesting discussion  going on at DorothyL regarding re-reading some favorite books - children's books in particular.  A member (Thank you, Jane!)  pointed out this wonderful piece written by Jo Walton, science fiction and fantasy writer.   

Ms. Walton has a theory about why this happens.   

If you've tried to re-read a much loved book and find it suddenly disappointing and the magic all gone, it might just be because of The Suck Fairy.  I'm a believer!  Read it yourself, and see if you don't agree  -

I was not familiar with Ms. Walton's work before this evening, but after reading this piece, I certainly intend to look for her novels, along with her poetry.

Now I can explain to people why I don't re-read books! The Suck Fairy!
