If you’re not enjoying a book, will you stop mid-way? Or do you push through to the end? What makes you decide to stop?I have been known to stop reading a book before I've finished it. Although I admit that it doesn't happen frequently. Earlier this year I stopped reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo halfway through the book because I was seriously disturbed by the brutality being written. I put it aside for a week and really didn't think I was going to finish it. I did end up finishing that particular book and I'm glad that I did.
Usually, if I do give up on a book it's because I am thoroughly bored. Often times, in this instance, I just do not care about the characters, the story or the outcome.
There have also been a few times that I have had to stop reading a book because the writing was just atrocious; to the point that I wonder how the book even got published.
I don't like to give up on a book but I will under the above circumstances. Life is too short and there are too many good books waiting to be read to waste time on the bad ones.
