An uphill task

    Has any book made you, after reading some, want to throw it  down from a mountain top into the sea, so boring it was?

      Pride and Prejudice. I love deep, interesting, insightful books but after 20 pages of that all I could think about was there obvious sexual inhibitions and how fake they were!

      I tried twice but have never finished that book. And this is from the person who read War & Peace twice!

      Many.  Because they were so boring (or sometimes so full of factual errors or  just incredibly poor writing), I don't remember names.

        Strangely, of all the books I've found boring, the dictionary was never one of them.  hmm   I used to love "reading" the dictionary when I was a kid.  I don't know...    It just had lots of "interesting" little bits of information in it (and at the end of it).   smile

        The idea of throwing some of those books into the sea from a mountain never occurred to me.  For me, most of those books were assigned reading; so they just made me "mean" or else made me feel like crying because I was expected to read them.   lol

    Conrad's "Heart of Darkness". Sadly, I had to spend an entire semester on it though. One of the most tedious times in my life! lol
