    Mine was Lord of the Rings.  I thought I ought to try it even though I had thoroughly disliked The Hobbit as a child.  I have tried three times and never got beyond the first five pages.  I'e given up.

    Truman Capote's 'In Cold Blood', way back then.

      Gotta agree with this one. And, 'Sister Carrie.' I actually read a bit of it, but it was for a course. I bloody hate it.
