I LOVE reading (would rather do that then watch a movie any day) and will generally read anything :), but I could NOT get through Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I tried reading this book when I was younger and couldn't do it. Then when I was in high school, it was part of my English class and I couldn't get past the first third of the book! Finally, in uni. I was an English major and it was one of the books I had to read again -- NO DICE! I just could NOT read this book! Is there a trick to liking this book? LOL!
I completely agree. We were assigned to read it in high school... Just didn't happen for me! :)
Hands down the most infuriatingly pointless book I've ever attempted: The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway.
I quite literally threw it across the room. It is nothing more than a log of the routine of purposeless, lazy drunks who treat each other like s**t, they just happen to live in some nice European cities. And by nothing..... I mean that my head was spinning at the sheer repetitive nature of the hideously mundane details. EH should be ashamed of himself. It will take a miracle for me to give him another chance.
AHAHAh A+ Post. He is so overrated.

I got through the Shack, as I was waiting for the big "aha moment" everyone liked - all I could think of was that it was Christian version of the Matrix. LOL
my friend lent it to me to read and i really wanted to but i had chicklit i rather have been reading so yea, i stopped and switched over. i still have the book and i would like to one day finish reading it but for now, it's not top priority.
The Time Traveler's wife was a drag. I did finish it but I still don't understand what so special about it. The Shack. Another book I did finish but I so wanted to put it down once I understood what the book was about. I really should have read on the back cover before buying. It pissed me off that I wasted money on religious "propaganda".
