This book has practically sitting on my bookshelf since it came. So this month I gave it a shot after hearing so much high praise and reading the rave reviews. Everybody telling me that I need to read this book because it will pull at your heartstrings and you will instantly fall in love with the characters.
Okay I can see where this book might be an emotional read and all but I can’t for the life of me get into it. The writing style is just not my cup of tea. So much purple prose I can barf it up. Still I’m really interesting in reading this one but I know it will be a struggle.
Are there any others having trouble with this book? Should I just give up and take the lost or try again? I don’t particularly like not finishing a book. Something about needing to finish what I started. Plus this book is so beautiful to look at. I hate for it to be a waste. And I’m not ready to give it up, although I know it will find a wonderful home. Just hate when this happens. Especially when you have high hope for something.
So my question to my fellow readers/followers are there any books that you’ve struggled to read? Books that have rave reviews but you couldn’t get into? Did you give the book a second chance or just give it up and move to the next?
Please leave a comment with your answer. I would love to hear your thoughts.
