By give up, I mean you have time invested in it. Maybe money too. But you get at least half way through, throw up your hands and just surrender.
What are the causes?
It’s rare for me. But I will. I know at least a couple of times, a book has turned out to be more suited for young adults. Nothing wrong with that, but those books seem to get pretty cheesy.
Currently, I’m reading The First Fifteen Lives of Henry August. It’s quite interesting, and a whole new take on time travel. But, I’ve been busy, and can only read for about 15-20 minutes at a time. This is not the type of book that allows that. It keeps jumping back and forth not only in time, but between his different lives.
I’m getting hopelessly confused. But dammit, I’m 2/3rds the way through, and darned if I’m not going to see it to the end.
How about you? Do you always stick with it?
