No need to be sorry, at all. No book will appeal to us all. And already you've read enough that you will be able post something when we start to discuss it. And if you can borrow a library copy, or buy a super cheap copy, and be able to finish it, all the better.I have just read the first 50 odd pages. Not my style of writing at all! And I'm certainly not hooked on it. If I can find a cheap, secondhand copy, or borrow it from a library I will certainly try to finish it - but it's not a book I particularly want to own. Sorry!
Ditto.Not all books suit everyone, at least you given it a go.
I'm also stubborn and once I start a book, I will almost always try to finish it. I might start skimming, but will get to the end eventually.LOL, I almost look forward to a book that isn't really "my Thing." I push my way through, sometimes out of sheer stubbornness, and consider it a good way to stretch my boundaries. Sometimes I surprise myself and quite like something I started out VERY indifferent about! And there have been a couple of books that I had to force myself to finish, but once done, realized that I had quite enjoyed the story in retrospect. It's always fun to discover books like that.
About this book, I'm quite curious to see what I'm going to think of it. I still think the description sounds interesting, so I'm going to be disappointed, if the book, well, disappoints.
I've been trying not to read much about it, so as not to get spoiled, however, I think it's been made into a movie.
