So i finally dropped pic related after slogging through 500 pages of needless elucidation and overwrought speech (to which i agree with Nabokov's criticism he writes speech like a failed playwright).

I guess itll join the ranks of Verne's From Earth to the Moon and Palhunuhu's Snuff as books I've not finished. Though the age and covers are worth keeping them for anyway

So /lit/ what books have you given up on.

If you aren't in the mood for Dostoevsky it doesn't work.
Gave up on V. long ago. Couldn't interest me for shit. Haven't bothered with Pynchon since.

Gave up on Ulysses.

Picked it back up two years later and now it's my favourite book of all time.

I dont remember having any problems with Notes or The Double to my memory, nor with Russian stories in general. But i guess youre right. I probably wont bother with Tolstoy if its the same drama.

Took me two months but did it a year or so ago. Loved it.

Anything I've ever tried to read by Stephen King.
I gave it a fair shot, it really is all that bland.

I tried reading Ulysses when I was 15 and heard about it from a teacher in school. Made it 1.5 chapters and stopped. Reread most of it when I was 19. Liked it a lot more. I'm going to reread it later this year now that I'm older and much better read.
