I'm reading my first book for the project...

but I'm not making a lot of progresses. It's "The God of small things". At first I liked her style and I thought I was going to love it. But for some reason now I'm stuck. Maybe I'm too distracted, maybe it wasn't the right time. But I feel that her constant literariness makes the reading heavy and less fluent. I'm trying to get into the story but I'm almost half way through it and it feels like I haven't started yet. Should I keep going? I will anyway, I want to be able to say that I've read it even if I will end end not liking it, but I was wondering if somebody had the same feeling, or if somebody loved it, they could maybe tell me why so I might me more pushed to finish it!

  1. Valentina,

    I read this book several years ago and liked it (although I can't remember exactly why!). I do recall reading someone else's review recently where they said they struggled with it at first but then it took off for them, and they enjoyed it.

    I say give it a little time, but if you're truly miserable then you should stop. You can still post a review here, even if you didn't finish the book. Your thoughts and impressions are still important!
