Well, I haven't attempted to read any of his stuff in years so I suppose my distaste for him is mostly about him as a human being - his treatment of women, his daughter, becoming a bitter, jealous alcoholic and just all-around general shittyness. When I first got into him I was 15 or 16. He was something of a god to me then, but the more I learned about him as I got older the more disappointed I became. Perhaps it's simply a matter of killing your idols or whatever, but I do feel he was, or became later in life a rather pathetic, unsympathetic individual.
