As someone who has never been creative and sometimes struggles with what to say in my book reviews, I can appreciate how difficult it must be to write an entire novel. It is this admiration for authors that led me to make my personal rule of not giving up on a book until I've read 100 pages.
There are three reasons why I leave a book unfinished
I couldn't get into it because I'm not interested in the subject matter.
- I don't like the writing.
- Something in the book offends me personally.
I read 100 pages of Spirit and stopped because I was not interested in the subject matter (astral projection), I didn't like the writing style, and the language offended me. I'm sure that there are plenty of people out there who would love this book; but I'm not one of them. I apologize, Andrew Feder. I tried to like Spirit, I really did.
