Lately, I've read a lot of books that I have struggled to finish. How about you? I know each of us is different in likes and dislikes of what we like to read and what we find interesting, but I think there must be a common thread of things which frustrate each one of us in books. So, I thought I'd ask all of you since most of you are probably avid readers.
I'll start. For me the number one thing that causes me to put a book down and not finish it is
I don't care about the main character. I don't care what happens to him or her.
For me, the plot can be slow, the dialogue lousy, the story boring, but if I have connected in some way with the main character and I really care what happens to him or her, I'll stick it out.
What about you?
