a reading interlude

oh man, i've been on the waiting list since last summer for JK Rowling's new book "The Casual Vacancy"

i am not enjoying it, not even really one little bit.
it seems boring and i don't care or want to know any of the characters better.
if i hadn't been waiting so long (or keeping track of all my books read this year!) i would most likely put it down and walk away.

Thom says my problem is i keep calling it "that Harry Potter book"
his exact words were "you keep calling it the Harry Potter book, but Harry isn't going to apparate into this one"

he's not? well then why am i still reading it!?!

has anyone read this? does it redeem itself at all?

all i feel when i sit down to read it is: "oh, not you again"

maybe it's time to pack it in, life's too short to read bad books.

***updated to say that i read to about page 250 and then couldn't give it anymore. it was negative, filled with unnecessary swearing and terrible people... every last one of them... not worth my time or energy***
