Inspired by our author Andrew Shaffer’s post on his blog this morning asking whether reviewers are obligated to finish books and the ensuing discussion in his comments and on twitter, I thought I’d ask another question:
What book couldn’t you finish?
For me, it’s Huck Finn—though that didn’t stop me from getting an A on the essay I wrote about it in English class in high school (sorry Mr. Grossman! That’s the only time I did that, I swear.) Dialect is my kryptonite anyway, and I just could not read one more page.
