I thought the book was bad until some friends dragged me to the dreadful movie.

Mindyrecycles @Reecaspieces The book is much beloved by many! I hate when people disrespect a book I loved and here I am doing it to other people. Lol. Thanks for not taking offense. 3y

I was so excited about this book. I took it to the beach last summer expecting a blockbuster read. The premise sounded like it was tailor made for my exact tastes, and sure enough it kicked off with a fantastic scene of saurian combat... then palace intrigue... on and on with the palace intrigue with a crew of obnoxious characters who were obviously archetypes very intentionally stolen from Game of Thrones but less well realized. #failedtofinish

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Not even kidding about the ripping off of Game of Thrones. There's a huge guy named Bluemountain, there's a smart guy with dwarfism, there's a Count of Flowers instead of a Knight of Flowers, there's a hero named Rob, there's the Fanged Throne which everybody schemes for. On and on. 3y
howjessreads Ugh, so sad! 3y
JazzFeathers That's anche a shame. I read a very good review sometime back, and l have to admit that the premise alone is fantastic. So disappointed... 3y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk I plan on finishing eventually, but no time soon. 3y

I have to admit finish every single book I start. I cannot help it... sometimes they are shelved if life gets in the way but I finish them. This one however is one I wish I hadn't finished. I picked it up while traveling when it first came out and the blurb had me hooked. Little did I know the blurb was the best thing about this darn book! I kept waiting.. it had to get better - but no! #failedtofinish #springflingreading

howjessreads Oh man, I don't know how you do it!! There's no way I could finish every book I start! 3y

In school, I had the hardest time finishing assigned reading. One day, I'll attempt these books again. #FailedToFinish #SpringFlingReading

readinginthedark I dropped this one, too. But The Merchant of Venice! Watch the Al Pacino/Jeremy Irons version, and you'll want to read it! At least, I did. 3y
BookishMe Calvino plays with the mind!! Enticing yet repelling tale that was... 3y
merelybookish Two of my all-time favourites here. (Moby Dick is not one of them.) 3y

These are my only #dnf books of 2017 so far. It's not because they aren't good, I just didn't feel like continuing. Both of these were audiobooks, perhaps reading them would have been more successful. Oh, well! @jess.how
