Books you stopped reading . . .

Pages

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

either because they were boring or hard to read.

I got about six pages into Gravity's Rainbow before giving up and about one line into Finnegans Wake before returning it to the library.

I believe I got past the first small part of Ulysses before realizing I had no idea what the hell was going on or what I had just read.

Vengence (the book the film Munich is based on) I stopped reading because it talked at length about the political history of Israel and I didnt understand a word of it.

those rate high on the holy-fuck-this-is-difficult-to-read scale.

stopped House of Leaves because it was boring (especially Truant's sections) and wholly uninteresting.

City of Night because the protaganist was probrably the most loathsome character I have ever had the pleasure of reading about.

got bored with American Psycho. will most likely give it another chance soon.

last book I tried was Answers to Job by Jung. hard to read and boring. works on psychology, religion, and philosophy are generally pretty dull reads.

there are probrably countless other books I got a page or a paragraph into before putting it down. If it doesnt interest me from the get-go it probrably wont interest me five pages down the road.
