What about bad books?


It occurred to me that almost all the book reviews I post here are positive. There's a reason for this, and it's not that I like everything I read, or that I'm trying to kiss up to authors. It's because if I really don't like a book, I tend not to finish it. But I'm loath to post a review of a book I haven't finished. So I only post about the good ones. Do you want to hear about books I haven't finished, and why I gave up on them? Would that present a more balanced picture, and/or would it just be boring?

Yes! I would, for the simple reason that negative reviews tend to be funnier. Maybe just post the title of the book and the sentence or event that was The Last Straw?

I'd like to hear of the bad/did not finish books either just for the company. I don't finish books for various reasons, it would be interesting to hear yours.
