Can one legitimately write a review even if one hasn't actually read all of the book? Probably not but I do feel entitled to at least comment on the pages I did read.
A reading group read, this was a considerable book of 469 pages and I managed to make it to page 74. Not too good I know but, after what seemed like page upon page of violent events, I came across an act of torture that left me feeling physically ill.
Not like me not to finish a book once I've committed myself to reading it as you know but enough's enough, I have far too many books on my TBR mountain to worry about a book that left me feeling as disturbed as this one did.
Which brings me to the question.........
Which was the last book you started to read and couldn't finish and why?
