Yes, but I can’t remember which one or if I finished it!
I am trying SO HARD right now with Pride and Prejudice!! I loved the movie – I’ve seen a couple of different productions of it. But I just cannot get into the book! I have friends who have read it multiple times, and can’t put it down, but it just isn’t clicking for me. And on top of it, I like the characters Austen creates – I just don’t know why it isn’t grabbing me. So disappointing.
No way! Maybe you are in a funk. I have never met anyone who did not LOVE that book. I probably read it 3 times before I was 15.
See? SEE??? I don’t know what it is about this one book! Maybe it’s the old English. Maybe you’re right, and I’m just in a funk. I HAVE been wicked busy lately…
Mine would have to be Le Morte D’Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory. I think my biggest problem with this book was that I could not wrap my head around the words that were used in the 15th century.
I have, but I can’t remember the names of the books. Normally if I think it’s worth reading, I will push myself even if it takes a long time to get through it. But there have been a few that were just too boring. OK, for example, “Miracles” by C.S. Lewis. I was reading a set of 6 of his books, and some of them were engaging, others tolerable. But “Miracles” was just not worth the time and effort it was taking away from more interesting pursuits. So I skipped it.
A few, but I couldn’t tell you which ones.
I’ve started many books over the years that I’ve just had to put down. I’m not good with foreign books or overly English or anything like that. If I can’t understand it I don’t want to read it. I read to “take me away” and if I don’t understand it it’s not fun to me.
The last book I couldn’t get into was the one I was just bragging about getting. The really old book I got for a cent. I so looked forward to it too. It was over 700 pages and I couldn’t wait and I read almost 400 pages but it was just so boring. I also couldn’t read Danielle Steel’s new novel, Legacy. I thought it was boredom city. It happens.
Yes, but I don’t remember which ones. I really enjoy reading, and go through several books in a 2 week period. Sometimes I find that if I can’t get into it the first time, I will actually enjoy it at a later date.
Yes! “Miracle at St. Anna” by James McBride.
