I am not one to give up easily on a book. Even if I'm a little bored in certain parts of a book - I'll usually skim until it picks up for me again. However, I am pretty certain that I am about to give up on my current book The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. The thing is, until tonight, I was enjoying the book. Yes, it has taken me a while to read some of it but that's mostly because I've been busy. I'm halfway through it and it took a wild turn that actually makes me really sick.
I don't want to spoil the book for anyone still wanting to read it but I just can not stomach what I read tonight. It was not entertaining or educational (the two biggest reasons I read); it was just disgusting. I feel like I'm ranting. Actually, I guess I am but I'm really annoyed. I'm bummed because I picked this for my book club and I feel badly. Plus, I'm disturbed that this book, with this atrocious content, is so popular. As I said though, I'm only halfway through the book. So, in case I'm speaking out of turn and the rest of the book is redeemable I'd like to know that. Plus, I don't mean to offend anyone.
For now though, I'm angry and disgusted and I'm putting this book aside. Whether I pick it up and finish it someday remains to be seen.
