As the title says really .
Normally, if I don't like a book, I'll try and persevere in the hope that it picks up. However, recently I've found that I really can't be bothered to push through a book if I'm not liking it.
Two recent novels I've tried to finish and failed :
Lady Chatterley's Lover - I got about a hundred pages in, and just gave up. I couldn't cope with the flowery language and the long bits where nothing was happening.
Crime & Punishment - Just no. Really.
A suitable boy.Vikram Seth.
which is a shame.
because it was tremendously well written. just the names used to confuse me as they were all too similar, and i put it down for a few weeks, never to be able to regain my place.
No I don't understand twahts so good about them either. Took me ages to start reluctantly reading them, then skim-read up to number four. By the time I got to that one, I was mind-numbingly bored of them and haven't picked them up since. I like lord of teh Rings, but I've only ever read teh first one. Haven't had time to start the others!
