Told you it was irritating! No, I'm sure many people love this story, but it just wasn't my cup of tea at all.
Me too. Normally meticulous about my choices but have been disappointed. Inflicting a dull book to my senses is too unnecessary a purgatory.cajunmama said:I ocaissionally put a book down, but not very often. I have a very ecclectic taste in literature so for me to find something too dull is rare. But it has happened.

Coupland's "Generation X". I really, really tried to like this book because I was impressed with his other work, and persevered as long as I could with it. I made it to about 50 pages from the end and gave up when I realised I didn't actually care what happened to these people.
I'm tempted to ask you how it ends, but I'm not sure I really want to knowtartan_skirt said:I remember reading that... really boring but I made it all the way through. I was determined to get all the way through... looking back I don't think it was worth it.
tartan_skirt said:You could ask and I wouldn't know. It only read it a few months ago but the end was so boring I forgot...
hatter said:I don't so much 'put books down' - deliberately at least - as get distracted by other books. I often read more than one book at a time and sometimes one can drag on for ages while others get finished and I move on to new things.
that is my favorite book of ALL TIME, that book NEVER got boring, though, I havent read a book from another author than King in over a year (except for EB Hintons Outsiders, a school requirment) but Cujo, I found very boring, which is very uncommon for a king book, and the ultimate stopper, the Tommyknockers by Stephen King, that was SOOO boringhoneydevil said:I passed this depression (put a book down) only once in my life!! I know people will hate me, but it was IT by STEPHEN KING. I just couldn't figure out, how long he needs to come to the main theme in the book, when he needs about 4 to 5 pages to describe how a little boy plays with his papership.
