    Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy

    I've been 48% into the book since 2019

    Beloved by Toni Morrison

    Just got busy and never picked it up again

    The spy who came in from the Cold by John Le Carré

    Might end up finishing (i'm at 50%) but s*** is currently boring my socks off, even though it's short.

    I was about a third into it and I actually liked what I read, but like you, I just got busy with other stuff and never got back into it.

    this was so melodramatic at times, couldn't really get it after 200 pages

  • Nov 18, 2021

    damn y'all giving up on some classics. all good tho and I think it's better to admit a book isn't for you than forcing yourself to continue because others rave about it

    but I almost gave up on Beloved and am glad I stuck with it because the second half was much better. keep at it if you remember enough @Beach_kneega @venus

    been trying to get better at giving up books that don't grab me much. didn't finish:

    Piranesi by Susanna Clarke
    The Night Watchman by Louise Edrich
    The Last Samurai by Helen DeWitt (hated this one)
    Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
    Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari
    Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
    The Electric Kool Aid Test by Tom Wolfe
    Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins
    One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez (would like to revisit this one)

    Brothers Karamazov, it’s a good book and a great look into late 19th century Russian life, but incredibly dense. Hard to read for more than 30 minutes a time

    crime and punishment. want to read it but at the same time I find the first pages a bit boring

    Russian literature is very hard because they use 3 names for each person. But a good translation goes a long way. And an audiobook makes it even more palatable. I would recommend Master and Margarita (the Michael kerpelson translation) if you are still interested in a Russian masterpiece but Dostoevsky is not doing it for you.

    I need to give it another chance. This book is screaming my read the same way Stoner did after I quitted it.

    Do it

    Whole book worth it for the grand inquisitor chapter alone

    Its a modernist book but i still think it is relevant to our times due to how dude can go into the psyche of a person and kinda magnify emotions. Which is why it can be melodramatic.

    Normal People by Sally Rooney
    Perfume by Patrick Süskind

    The reason I remember them though is because I think about giving them another try sometimes.
