Failed Reads - August

Sunday, August 26, 2007

Failed reads are books I could not get into enough to even finish. Sad but true.

The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl
- couldn't get into it at all
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
- the first person narrator annoyed me
Stray by Rachel Vincent
- put it down after the first sentence
Poppy Shakespeare by Clare Allen
- the narrator is interesting, but hard to read because of the way she speaks. I am willing to try again later, perhaps
Keeping it Real by Justina Robson
- oh please... the cyborg chick who falls in love with the elf rock star she is supposed to be protecting... ugh.
Saint Vidicon to the Rescue
- very slow but interesting... Just not interesting enough for me to finish. Saints meets hackers is an interesting mix, though.
