Took You Some Time.

Have there been any books that you hated/didn't care for but after a while found a new-found love for it?

Mine would be Siddhartha, after I read it, I had a profound feeling of disintrest, but after a while I saw the true meaning of it as a man looking for self-peace by distrusting all teachings and following himself.

I read Hatchet for the first time in second grade. I couldn't stand it.
I read it again in fifth grade, and I loved it.

Tolkien, but then, my first attempt was in 3rd grade, which probably obstructed my full understanding of the text. (I did read it all and understand the basic plot though, which made me proud.)

Catcher in the Rye. When I first read it between 7th and 8th grades, I despised it. I tried again a few months later and still didn't like it. Three/four years later, when I reread it for the third time, I loved it.
