I like it very much, it's a great work, but many people list it among boring books...


Wanted to mention it but I forgot :D That's one of the hardest books to read!

I had to read it in college, and couldn't finish it. I found it soooooooooo dead boring!

Right now I am reading a book called The villa of mysteries, by David Hewson (had never heard about him before). I started reading the book eagerly, but it has disappointed me. I am trying to finish it because there are just about 90 pages left but it's becoming such a hard task! I find that book so boring... I am forcing myself to read, and that's not good, but I just want to finish it.

Oh, other novels I couldn't finish was Price and Prejudice by Jane Austen and master Dickens's Great Expectations :!: :!: I am really embarrassed to recognize that, but I found them boring as well :roll: I guess I should re-start them again and with more passion, it's so sad for an English philologist not to like those great English classics :roll:



hehehe yeah Dixie, shame on you! :P In fact Great Expectations were sheer boredom but Pride and prejudice I enjoyed very much if not very very very much especially Mr. Darcy.... ahhhhhhhhhhh he was yummy :)

Yes, I will start it anew and enjoy it. I know such a popular and well-known novel cannot be that dull, it's my fault.

" L'écume des jours ". Unenjoyable reading, unattractive book, bullshits again and again. Pointless story, shi* characters. To sum up, shi* book.
