For the past few weeks we have been talking about our favourite books.
For 5ThingsTuesday this week, let’s do something different. Let’s list some unfinished or Un-finishable books.
Here’s my list:
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
Maybe I made the attempt to read it too early, I must have been about fourteen or fifteen. I got through the “peace” times and urban settings quite well. It was the war descriptions that killed me.
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Maybe U have a problem with translated literature. I was quite disappointed by this book and could not get beyond the first four or five chapters.
Twilight by Stephanie Meyers
This book was extremely popular when it was published. Although the basic concept wasn’t too bad I didn’t find it well written.
Again, this is probably a genre I am not too fond of. “Finding oneself ” is very appealing to some but it puts me off.
Several nonfiction books
While I can read fiction by my preferred authors despite one of my phenomenal headaches, I have to struggle with non fiction. Well written biographies I can manage.
I would love to see your list too. You can let me know in the comments section or write a post of your own — please remember to tag it #5things
