A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain
by Adrianne Harun (audiobook)
This is the first book I gave up on since I started blogging. I made a decision that if a book doesn’t catch me in any way, I would give up on it without regret. I use to slaved through books I absolutely hated. But life is too short to keep reading horrible books. Life is too short to read all you want.
I can tell that this was an atmospheric novel, where the setting plays an important part of the story. This is one aspect of writing I love. But nothing seemed to be really happening, nothing to really hook me, within the first hour of the audiobook. I started to stop paying attention to the characters moving in and out of the story within the hour. So, I decided to give up.
Maybe I will try it again, when I am relatively caught up with my pile (OK, maybe never), but for now, it’s on my “gave-up” pile.
