You know, that may be the other common factor here.

Show of hands?

I read them because of a Boy too. (I also read Conrad because of the 
same Boy. I do, IOW, remember which one. Also he introduced me to 
Estwings, darts, and hard cider, so, you know, I forgive him.)

There is probably no situation more conducive to developing a deep 
searing loathing of Donaldson than having a gentleman with whom one is 
romantically involved shove them at you swearing that the stuff is the 
greatest thing since sliced bread and then running into THAT SCENE.
