Warning

I finished reading So Much for That by Lionel Shriver--one of those books I wish that I had never started or that I had just decided not to finish. Why is that such a hard thing? This book should have come with a strongly worded warning label: If you have the slightest tendency towards depression, do not attempt to read this book!

  1. Awe-geez, I hate books like that. Thanks for the warning.

  2. I hate books like that, too. But, I have a strange compulsion to finish reading them once I start. I don't know why I can't just toss them.

  3. Thanks a bunch, I will avoid that one. I too try to finish books I shouldn't. Can't count on one hand the books I have been able to ditch in 60 years of reading.

  4. Thanks for the warning! Like everyone else I will try to stick it out to the end of a book no matter how painful!

I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
