It is very rare that I leave a book unfinished, even if it takes me a month or year to complete. This is the second book this year that I'm pretty sure will be a DNF.

2 hours in and I feel like I'm getting nowhere. There are mixed reviews about this one on Goodreads/Amazon. Some say it's a waste of time, while others say it's brilliant. Maybe I'm missing something but fear I am not. Has anyone else read this??

StaceGhost I have! It was definitely a slow burn but when it switches to Mathilde‘s perspective I liked it much better. Honestly, I can‘t say the writing style changes much though so maybe it‘s a Dnf for you and that‘s valid! 2w
TheSpineView It was a DNF for me also.😏 2w
marleed I was not a fan of part 1 at all but stuck with it because that‘s just kind of what I do. But the change of perspective in part 2 is fascinating. It even convinced me to turn back and reread the pages I‘d initially forced my way through. 2w

RebeccaRoo7 @StaceGhost That totally makes sense. Maybe right now just isn't the time for me to read it. I really enjoyed her "Monsters of Templeton" and this writing style took me by surprise, I guess. 1w
RebeccaRoo7 @TheSpineView I'm glad to know I am not the only one struggling to get through this book. I just feel like I'm reading a frat boy's diary in most places. 1w
RebeccaRoo7 @marleed That's a great idea! I think I'm going to put it down and try again at a later date. 1w

I picked a #DNF title from each of my TBR stacks: Outlander I have on my Kindle & have tried several times to get through it & have never made it past 10%-it just annoys me 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1Q84 is in my physical #TBR & I think it‘s both too long & too smart for me.🤔 Resistance in my Audible TBR puts me to sleep even though I 💛Tori Amos.😵‍💫 Finally, I have been at 70% of The Mysteries of Udolpho on Serial Reads for a couple of years now.⬇️

DebinHawaii … & I don‘t know why I can‘t just finish it but I keep voting for the #PemberLittens to read it hoping that will inspire me! 😉 2w
Eggs Love the quote💕 and Murakami, for me, is hit-and-miss. Though I did like his NF books. 2w

shortsarahrose I‘ve never picked it up, but I HATED the movie, so I doubt I would like the book. 2w

I rarely if ever bail but in the year of its publication I have to confess tried twice, failed twice. One day !!!!!!

Tamra I think it‘s an acquired taste….I haven‘t even tried! 🤭 2w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I used to always finish a book, but life is too short 🤪 2w
Graywacke Have you considered one of the companion guides? I have a one-day plan too, but I‘ll need that kind of help. 2w
Cathythoughts I never got past the first page , I‘m leaving it for my next lifetime 😁 2w

I usually like Dean Koontz‘s books, but I just couldn‘t get into this one.

Eggs Great cover tho 2w
DarkMina @Eggs It is! 2w
Tera66 Oh man! I LOVED this one so much, but I gave it to a friend and she didn't like it either. 😄 2w
DarkMina @Tera66 Yeah it is rare that I don‘t like a book by him. (edited) 2w

Just a DNF for now. Made it to page 100 a few years back and set it aside for some reason. I fully intend to get back to it eventually.

Eggs Love the cover🖤🤍🖤 2w
rabbitprincess I also DNF‘d but would like to read this eventually. I found the Penguin edition hard to read physically, maybe because of the line spacing. I hope to find this in another edition. 2w
Leftcoastzen On my list but I know I have to be in the right mind set . Lucky that I found a hardcover. 2w
CarolynM I hope you will pick it up again because it really is worth the effort 💔 @rabbitprincess @Leftcoastzen 2w

I enjoyed The Maze Runner so I thought I would give this trilogy a try but I couldn‘t even make it half way into the first book. This book is just terrible and I was not a fan of the writing style AT ALL! (I am a book hoarder so I still have the whole trilogy with no inclination to read it 😬)

JuliaTheBookNerd I bailed on this one too! I know people seem to love it but I only made it half way by forcing myself to keep going. Not a fan 😬 2w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I didn‘t finish this one either!! 2w
Eggs The cover sort of repels me 😕 2w

jlhammar I picked this for my book club years ago after reading and loving it. A bad choice based on page count alone (I learned my lesson). Many didn't finish and it wasn't a hit with most who did. So you are definitely not alone! 2w
TheLudicReader I know lots of people hate this one, but I loved it. 2w
DivineDiana @TheLudicReader I Ioved it too! 1w
