  • So... you're halfway through a book and you're hating it. It's boring. It's trite. It's badly written. But... you've invested all this time to reading the first half.
    What do you do? Read the second half? Just to finish out the story? Find out what happens?
    Or, cut your losses and dump the second half?

heh. A few books in this category... amusingly, Half Life was one of them. also Light. and Spaceman Blues: a Love Story.

I hated these books. But I finished them all.

I kept thinking something interesting would happen. Or maybe something comprehensible would happen to, you know, explain the point of the book.

It's a shame, really. I am usually very picky about the books I buy. And yet, these somehow got past my censor!

Well, it's been a while since I've read a totally crappy book. (the above books I read in 2007 and 2008.)

The books I'm reading right now are great!!
