Spoiler Warning! Others may respond with specific details! You have been warned. I searched in hopes to resurrect a long dead thread to fulfill my needs but i could not find one. So I have decided to create my own! Have you ever had to put down a book for any numbers of reasons? The story didn't appeal to you or maybe the author's style of writing just wasn't your cup of tea? I personally find it very difficult to stop reading something once I am in full swing. So it was very hard when I got to page 234 of A Cavern of Black Ice by J.V. Jones to simply walk away. The story was just getting to a point where I could care less. I found that every time I got to a section on Ash, I would cringe inwardly. It became more of a chore then enjoyment in the end. My recent reads include The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombieand The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss so I found myself spoiled with rich characterization and flowing storylines. The whole tone of the novel began to repulse me rather then intrigue. Has this ever happened to you? Was there a book that you could not take anymore of?
