How bad does a book have to be for you to stop reading, or do you always plow through no matter what? What are some examples of books you stopped reading, or forced yourself to keep reading until the end? What made these books so horrible?
The only book in school that I was supposed to read that I didn't was Jane Eyre. I think I read, maybe five pages. As soon as it was clear to me that this was more Bronte (I did struggle through Wuthering Heights, probably the most boring book I've ever read - it was like chewing sandpaper bad), I got the Cliff Notes and faked my way through assignments on that one. Got perfectly good marks, but damn. No Bronte.
Sometimes I think I should go back and try Jane Eyre again, because supposedly it's good? But no. Wuthering Heights was so bad that I just can't.
