When do you give up on a book? What makes you roll your eyes and stop reading? Have you ever thrown a book across the room?
Tell me what drives you to abandon a book. Is it mediocre writing? A meandering plot? No discernable plot? Strident politics? Sexism? Racism? Cardboard characters? Characters who act endlessly, ridiculously stupid? An ending that dribbles to nothing?
I’ve abandoned books for all those reasons. I’ve grumbled and snarled and pitched novels against the wall.
How about you?
