Up to page 175 and finding it rather dull.

Shall I cut my losses now, or does it get better??

oh I did too. keep thinking I should give it another go - although don't think I got that far

I can't remember what happens up to pg 175 but I do remember feeling that I needed to persevere at some point, by the end I thought it was fab. Carry on I say.

Yes definately persevere.. the first bit needs concentration but it then gets much easier to read. I have just finished it and it was really good.

I can never remember what happens at the end of books but I always know if i'm diappointed or not and I definitely was not disappointed with Time travellers Wife.

I'd say persevere.

I gave up, life's too short.

Keep going, I struggled with the first part kept thinking I would give up but I was on holiday and had nothing else to read. I persevered and loved it, cried buckets though. It really does get better.

i gave up, i will never get those precious hours back.

try the thursday next series instead!

I really liked it but quite a few people on here slated it. I'd say persevere though.

Give up, it's pants.

poppysocks Fri 31-Aug-07 20:35:12

I'd persevere too. Found the beginning trying, but was intrigued about the basic concept. Once I had that I was sucked in, cried buckets and finished happy.

Give up.

TheMaskedPoster Fri 31-Aug-07 20:35:36

ditto Califrau ... wasn't overly impressed

OrmIrian Fri 31-Aug-07 20:39:11

Give up. It's a heap of objectionable sh*te.

IMO obviously.

expatinscotland Fri 31-Aug-07 20:40:17

Give up, the ending's shite.

Ash80 Fri 31-Aug-07 20:41:19

I say give up, i too gave up,was too slow and boring!!!

Lostmykeys Fri 31-Aug-07 20:42:26

I gave up and am glad for the feedback on here as I won't bother trying it again

professorplum Fri 31-Aug-07 20:43:32

Give up. Its creepy and dull

expatinscotland Fri 31-Aug-07 20:43:57

The 50 page rule! The 50 page rule!

Nooooo, keep going. I enjoyed it..it's not the greatest novel ever, but you need to find out what happens in the end.

expatinscotland Fri 31-Aug-07 20:48:51

I can tell you what happens in the end and save you the bother, Sidge .

daisyandbabybootoo Fri 31-Aug-07 20:50:28

I thought this was a fab book...it had me gripped from the offset.

another vote for persevering.

expatinscotland Fri 31-Aug-07 20:51:53

But if it hasn't gripped you by page 175 it's probably not a book that you'll find fascinating.
