After four days of attempting to read Incarceron by Catherine Fisher, I have finally decided to call it quits.
I got 176 pages into it, and I got to the point where it felt like medieval torture to even think about reading on.
I'm kind of disappointed that I'm not going to finish the book, because when I got it I was really excited to dive right into it.
Maybe in a couple of months I'll try re-reading it, but for now it has been pushed to the bottom of my reading stack. :(
It is rare that I have to stop reading in the middle of a book (*correction -- I didn't even make it to the halfway mark!), so this is a sad, sad, day. :P
A couple of things attributed to me not being able to finish it:
1) The book was simply boring. I didn't really want to read on to find out what happens next.
2) I found it hard to follow the writing. (There were too many adjectives in places where adjectives shouldn't be)
3) It just dragged on and on --- it took one hundred and something pages for something remotely exciting to happen
Now, I'm not trying to diss the book because it definitely has potential --- the story idea in itself is very unique.
I don't know, maybe it's just me.
If you've read the book, comment below and tell me what you thought about it.
