Is it normal to not like one type of meeting in aa (speaker, big book, living sober, 12&12, etc.)?

In brief: Yes
You don't have to like everything in aa, just enough to keep you going back, focus on the positive, keep an open mind, and remain willing.
Crazy thing about aa is if you stick with it, what you don't like now you may love in the future. But maybe not, plenty of meetings to choose from.

In brief: Yes
Many regular aa attendees will only go to book meetings, or step meetings, or prefer open meetings.
Most go to all types of meetings, but will have a "home" group they prefer. Whatever works for you is what is normal.
