Very very rare this happens, can't remember a recent occasion, although I can remember not being able to get through Interview with a Vampire when I was younger - but love it now. And I think I struggled with Dracula and Frankenstein. And anything like Jane Austen, Charles Dickens I can't do. I am trying to get through some really boring true life ghost type books my boss lent me at the moment - even my neighbour said they were boring, but as I have been lent them, I feel obliged to finish them. Need to go and get some decent fiction next week to help me through it though!! And I agree with Isle of Dogs, I hated that book, but it was a holiday book, so I didn't have much choice, I had limited stuff with me!! Dont think it came back of hols though!!
