I was reading A Complicated Kindness and about halfway through….not even half I got bored. Its just not engaging me. It has a couple of humourous parts, but its still fairly bleak and depressing. I think to myself ‘too bad’ about the character but I haven’t been drawn in to care more.
So I switched to The Celestine Prophecy. A book that spent 165 weeks on the New York Times Bestsellers list. And I got a little less than halfway through….and I’m bored. I can see why it’s so successful though. Its very new age and spiratual. But the character development sucks. And the plot is barebones. Its really just the writers vehicle to describe his spiritual beliefs….oh well.
I think I’ll switch to the death of superman or I picked up a Michael Crichton book awhile back that I haven’t read yet and I usually enjoy his work….hopefully. I really enjoy reading but I want to read something good!
Oh it really bugs me not to finish these books. I think I use to have some sort of OCD cumpulsion to finish anything in its entirety. I’ve got much better at that now. I don’t like reading to be a chore. It should be fun 🙂
